Exactly. I don't know any software project that uses it, except for Pier.

This is certainly an interesting idea. It would probably be a bit
trickier to determine whether to perform the redirect or not, but
certainly possible. I don't see an reason not to be able to
encapsulate this in the WAActionCallback. Maybe Avi can confirm this?
I guess Avi implemented this feature a long time ago.

Do you have a specific reason you want to get rid of this parameter,
except for aesthetic ones?
