Well.  The part I posted should pretty much be obvious, at least I hope
so.  I separated it from the next because that will likely be less
unanimous.  And of course, I posted it in the hope that any silly
glitches of mine could be spotted.  :-)

Other than that: new tests that I (have to) maintain and either I don't
understand, or seem maintenance-intensive, or otherwise problematic,
certainly don't fall under the obvious rule, if you ask me.  FWIW, I
have tests lying on my disk for quite a while that I've never submitted,
because they would be problematic (this one started some months ago).

Thanks for the review!  Installed.
