Really, I've always overwritten the lib-common and grafted any of my 
hacks into the new file. Also, the only folks really in trouble here 
are those who have magic_quote_gpc set to true. That should be pretty 
rare (and frankly they should just get that fixed in the php.ini). 
Remember for most installations, my code change is an if() that returns false.

And Oliver is right, I grabbed calendar from CVS and had to add 
COM_createLink to the function.inc (inside an if  function_exists, of 
course) in order to use it with 1.4.1. Although, that was the only 
change I had to copy over from CVS to get it running.
