I don't recall any specific objections that weren't answered. There was
some (short) talk about having a "backoff" so it won't update the file
too often if the user requests it, but I don't think we ever concluded
if that was necessary or not. If it is, I think we can add that on top
of what's there now, and there's no need to revert. 

If there were/are other objections that I missed, a revert might be
needed. Can't really comment since I missed them in that case ;-)

I think the use of "attempt" was more that I expected more comments, and
also somewhat in light of the concurrent discussions about getting rid
of the code to accept delayed destroy messages.
