So IIUC your cover letter even this /used/ to work but
broke only recently? So I feel like the message is a bit
misleading (i.e. you argue for a change in behavior instead of
calling it a bug fix for a regression. I think a bug fix for a regression
is harder to revert as compared to a "new" behavior)
I agree on the code, though.
