For gawd's sake guys. I've asked three times and now I'm getting
rhetorical questions for answers. It's like drawing teeth.

Will someone please write a halfway decent description of this change?
One which (at least) covers all the questions I've been asking?

What the change is, why it is being made, what the user-visible
presentation is, what the impact upon users is, why we think it won't
be a problem, etc? The stuff which should have been right there from
day one, before the code change was even made?
