Does such a kind of feedback mean that you reconsidered any places
where you expressed a rejection initially?

Why would you like to exclude this approach if anything useful could be achieved
in the shown software design direction?

I agree that corresponding effects are small just because the discussed
source code adjustments affected specific function implementations.

Thanks.

A lot of details are competing also for our software development attention.
