Which would have been obvious to all but the most casual readers, eh?

We've been over this already:

  The body should provide a meaningful commit message, which:

    . explains the problem the change tries to solve, iow, what is wrong
      with the current code without the change.

    . justifies the way the change solves the problem, iow, why the
      result with the change is better.

    . alternate solutions considered but discarded, if any.

I'll gladly review your patches again once you have done that.
