Yeah, I see what you mean about it being quite harmless, so I don't feel

don't want to push for something that adds (slight) risk to a release

complication-free (ha, theories - see the weakness weaknes thread).
So, I'll accept whatever other people decide, and it's really mostly up
to Doug and the VM maintainers.
