Yes, this is correct. However it had me looking at that code and pretty
much everything else is completely wrong :-)

That is, its functionally correct (probably), but the function name is
not descriptive of what the function does and the comment is just plain

Also, since both functions are only used in core.c we should probably
move them there.

Do you think you can fix all that as well?
