Then let's add him in cc ;)

I'm okay if these functions stay because they have a user, but it would
also be nice if they were properly byte-based (like everything else in
dirty-bitmap at the end of my series).  So even if we remove them here,
we can revert the removal, and re-add them but with a sane interface.
