Yes, I should have done this ages ago.  Just some nit-picking below:

This block has a blank line in it, so I think it needs a blank line
either side to make the visual grouping of code right.  Alternately you
could pull the variable out of the block.

Good point but an unrelated change.

Introducing this local variable is a useful cleanup but again should be
a separate change.
