This is another one that needs to be pretty carefully considered
_independently_ of the rest of this set. It also has potential
user-visible changes, so it would be nice to have a blurb in the patch
description if you've thought about this, any why you think it's OK.

But, it still makes solid sense to me, and simplifies the code.
