I know. But your comment made me second-guess a little whether
anybody would be inadvertently hurt, but thinking it through and writing
it out helped convince myself that it's the right thing to do.
One of the hardest parts of working on a mature software project is not
just thinking about what you want to do, but thinking about what
everyone else wants to do (or is doing). So it never hurts to
double-check your assumptions in such a case, and I don't mind working
through these "what ifs" even if they end in us doing the original
thing. I hope you do not mind reading them too much. :)
