A second set of eyes is always welcome.

My thoughts: I have to admit I don't see much value in mechanical
replacements like this one when done piecemeal and without other more
significant changes on top.  If this was fixing some particular
eyesore, I would understand, and a little preparatory cleanup to make
another patch on top more readable is always welcome, but this kind of

does not look worth the churn and mailing list noise to me.

A patch that globally took care of these var+constant constructs
without surrounding space and did nothing else, once and for all to
avoid later noise, may or may not be useful.  I suspect even that
wouldn't be worth it, since "k+6" already seems perfectly readable.

So, not too excited by this change.

Hope that helps,
