I think this is extreme and uncalled-for.  You may disagree with the
design, but it's here and it works.  It brings some additional
benefits, albeit not free of cost.  After looking at the code for
quite some time, my conclusion is that the price is not insignificant,
but not painful enough to be an issue.  It certainly doesn't deserve
to be called "brain-dead".  Definitely not when the work has already
been done and endured the initial shock of being integrated with

So if you still disagree, let's please leave it at that, and move on.
