Thanks for a summary; the last "would be better" is a qualified one,

My understanding is that we agreed that it would be better *if* we
can fix it at a more fundamental level. I looked at the codepaths
involved just enough to make that off the cuff suggestion and no
deeper than that, and I suspect neither did Peff.

If any of us looked at the problem deep enough, we may realize that
it would affect too many things, and $gmane/232833/focus=232835
(your second round) may turn out to be a better solution.  I think
none of us know yet.
