I understand, but why does this make it a "major" problem? The only
major problem in Edebug I could understand is if Edebug could not be
used at all in some popular situation. FWIW, I never set
edebug-unwrap-results non-nil, and I'm a happy "Edebugger".

That's one thing; the other is why do we need to change edebug-unwrap1
as well? AFAIU, that takes care of a separate issue, right?
