Yes, it is not clear what is actually better, so ...

Only if you think this makes more sense. I do not have a strong opinion.

And we can change the implementation at any time. The real problem is
the API this patch adds. I leave this to you and other reviewers who
understand the problem space better ;) Just I think that the changelog
could say a bit more, to explain why do we need this patch. IOW, explain
the problem and how/why this patch helps.
