Given that the code has been around for 8 years, changing it at this
point in the release process might be a disaster.  It's not even clear
to me what TRT is in this case.  I suggest leaving the current
behavior as it is for Emacs 22; any user-level Lisp code that bumps
into this can quite easily work around it by checking if this-command
is eq to universal-argument.

Then maybe we can revisit this issue after the release.  WDYT?
