Sorry, I do not quite understand, especially the "exactly matching"
part, which as far as I know is not special (in other words, I am
not sure what kind of "special casing" you are discussing).

By "refusing to prune" do you mean "error out with die()"?

I was trying to make sure your "outlaw" was not something else
(e.g. "die without not pruning anything that are not even
overlapping"), which is probably too strong.

I think what your patch did was "keep them around not pruned because
we do not know where they came from" (I just checked $gmane/228589
again); that is in line with "warned but not rejected", so I think
we are OK.
