Perhaps we can do better the next time, then.  I find unreadable
code is impossible to reason about its correctness, so you'd need
to pay attention to style and maintenance issues to quickly get past
that step.

Are you saying that I should not merge the series as is but expect
an update that does these squashing?  I was planning to make this a
merge-down day, but let me exclude this topic from the "for next"
batch just in case for today.
