Well, the vacuum-only fix has the advantage that the patch has already
been written, tested, discussed, beaten to death, resurrected,
rewritten, and is ready to be committed, while the "general solution" is
not even past the handwaving phase, let alone *thinking*.

And we have only three days before feature freeze, so if you want the
general solution for 8.2 you should start *thinking* really fast :-)
