Damned if you do, damned if you don't.  I've asked you about putting
stuff into RELENG_4 before and you said to put it in -current and then
immediately MFC it so people wouldn't complain that it didn't go thru
current.  (I also didn't consider it applicable only to that branch)

I didn't know about the feature in current (nor did those on the Alpha
