    I fail to see the simplicity.  All the difficulty comes from having to think
    about when to be careful about the match-data.

Yes, but if people get in the habit of using a new function
whenever they don't actually want to use the match data,
which I expect is most of the time, that need to think carefully
will be much less frequent.
