Only beacuse Dire Wolf is doing a pointless version check.  Remove
that and the libs are compatible at the source level.

Which will break things.

remove the pointless #error.  Explain what your problem is, as I
still do not understand "excess messages".

Clearly we believe differently.  Many clients are happy with 3.22.2!dev,
no other bug reports remoteyl similar to this one.

Then that would be a Dire Wolf problem.  Of, put another way, nothing
you can do to change the MT3333.

See above.  And then, so this does not become lost, nag the Dire Wolf
coder to fix his code.  We'll help with that.
