No, I was saying that the above block of code is a functional change,
but I was also pointing out other areas which were not and could be
folded into a separate atomic patch where no functionality changes.

No, I'm suggesting you can probably split this patch in 2, one which
wraps things with no functional changes, and another which adds your
changes.
