OK, I'll make that change.

Yes, that attracted me, too. It's nice to write the "if" code once, instead of
many times. But doing it efficiently requires using a bool argument (otherwise,
you end up with another "if" branch, to convert from bool to an enum or flag arg),
and that's generally avoided because no one wants to see code of the form:

do_this(0, 1, 0, 1);
do_this(1, 0, 0, 1);

, which, although hilarious, is still evil. haha. Anyway, maybe I'll leave it as-is
for now, to inject some hysteresis into this aspect of the review?


thanks,
