I'm just trying to understand your comments so that I can have an
intelligent opinion about what we should do from here.  Given that the
replan wouldn't happen anyway, there seems to be no reason to tinker
with the location of enrtuples for v10 -- which is exactly what both
of us already said, but I was confused about your comments about
enrtuples getting changed.  I think that I am no longer confused.

We still need to review and commit the minimal cleanup patch Thomas
posted upthread (v1, not v2).  I think I might go do that unless
somebody else is feeling the urge to whack it around before commit.
