I think that still falls into #2, and that's pretty
much my point.

Analogy: I need an oil change.  I take my car to the
car shop.  They do the oil change.  They also return
my car with a flat tire that it didn't have before.  I
know it could be an accident, but the responsible
thing to do is for the car shop to fix that flat tire.

Besides, without this type of "responsibility" in
place, I could theoretically pay a developer to fix a
bug for me, and then, 3 months down the line, some
other developer breaks it.  What do I do then?  Pay
money again to have someone refix it?
