Thanks for still replying :)

Thanks for catching this, both this and the above are worth changing
imo.  I see Ramsay already provided a patch for this in
https://public-inbox.org/git/aa004526-3e0d-66d4-287f-30abd2975...@ramsayjones.plus.com/.
Thanks Ramsay!

I'm not sure about this.  While I do agree that it could be quite
annoying in the last case, it could potentially be a bit confusing to
not get any warning in the first case.  I don't have a strong opinion
either way.

I think this looks nicer indeed, thanks!  But it's probably not worth
a patch for just this unless we decide to change to not warn as you
mentioned above, and can fix this at the same time?
