I wondered about that too, but there are no other roughly similar cases
that I could find, and abstracting from a single use-case is perilous ---
especially when there's no compelling reason to think there will ever be
any other similar use-cases.  I'd originally wondered whether we could
replace this logic with a call to something in tqual.c, but none of the
available functions there produce the required behavior either.
