Just to put some argument behind it: the new code that replaces Martin's
is not humongous, not many-faceted, ... instead it's a fairly small
change, localized change, with a reasonably clear "backward
compatibility argument".
That's why we haven't seen too many bug reports since this new scheme
has been installed.
Sadly, it goes much less far than Martin's change, so some of the more
interesting developments end up postponed to 24.2.
