OK, and it was good that you explicitly said "with exit code 0" in
the log message.  Together with the idea to update the doc I floated
earlier, this probably is worth documenting, too.

No, you misunderstood.  I knew what message in the immediate past
triggered this patch and that wasn't what I "could have dug for but
didn't".  "The earlier request" I meant was another one I recall
that was made long time ago---that was what I "could have dug for
but didn't".

Sounds good.  It is likely that I'll either forget or will continue
to be too busy to pick textual pieces and assemble together myself,
so I'll leave it as a left over bit for somebody reading from the
sideline to send in a finished version if they care deeply enough
