Hmph, should it?

I do not quite understand what "... are not really understood.
Perhaps..." wants to say.  Understood by whom?  By the author of the
patch?  By the author of the original code?

The log would end up saying "Doing the same as bazaar should be the
right thing to do(TM), but don't ask me why.  I do not know what I
am doing, or why checking is better than not checking, but it seems
to work".  That _could_ be the truth, but it won't help people who
are reading the code later, will it?
