Thanks, Martin. That is a very nice observation, and I think you are
right that we can make the additional refactor/simplification/clean-up
that you mention, without changing behavior. For clarity I think that
would be nice to have as a separate follow-on commit. Are you
interested in posting a follow-on patch for that, since it's your nice
idea?

thanks,
neal
