It's a tricky thing...
The choices are:
1) Fix it in the CorrectWay[tm] which we both agree is
2) Revert to something that looks buggy. But there is a chance it has
been tested and works. We would hide the static checker warning
which would make the bug harder to fix in the future.
3) Leave the code as-is and wait until someone can test it. At least
the static checker warning is there so we will fix it eventually.
I feel like we should take option 1 and if no one complains that means
either no one is using the driver or it works. Long term that's the
devel mailing list
