I'm still not 100% sure what you're referring to. On the off chance
that this change breaks some legitimate situation, we can revert it,
or fix it up for the situation in question. Note that definition of
"legitimate" isn't always going to be "it used to work" - sometimes
things work but aren't worth supporting. (And sometimes they are.)
Given Chad and Dave's reviews, and I believe some on-irc support for
this approach, I'm going ahead and pushing this.
