[asterisk-dev] chan_ooh323 - use at your own risk?

I was just looking through the code for chan_ooh323.c and came across
a log message in load_module() that says:

"This module is currently unsupported.  Use it at your own risk."

This raised a few questions in my mind:

1. At whose risk do I use other parts of asterisk? i.e. how does this differ?
I thought the risk was mine anyway....

2. Why was it felt necessary to include the statement? Is there any
implication regarding the acceptance of and action on bug reports?

I've just started using chan_ooh323 (admittedly on Asterisk 1.2) and found
it feels much cleaner and snappier than the other H.323 implementations I
have tried in the past (I never got chan_h323 to work, and chan_oh323 was
a bloated resource hog). So it would be a pity to see chan_ooh323 stagnate.
I have a couple of pending bug reports and/or patches to submit.
