"make doc" is really expensive.  And the staging branch is our ultimate
safety net (more often than not, patches gone through testing and review
need rebasing before getting pushed, and we don't start a new
test-patchy for that), intended to catch unexpected kinds of problem.

Which this, in a way, was.

Well, it was more or less coincidence that made that problem turn up
(which should really have been discussed and resolved in review in a
perfect world), but if we are handed on a platter the chance to improve
a previous choice including an example of why that would be a good idea,
it would be a shame to waste it.
