Even though it may not be the end of the world, that is certainly
bad. Recording the constituent fields separately without the statcrc
microoptimization, thereby not shaving a handful of bytes per the
index entry, is not the end of the world either in the same sense,
which leads us to question the benefit we would be getting from such
a change.
