Very funny.

I realize that you, the three complainers (Johan, Dan and Colin), together
have almost 10000 commits. So, I feel a bit outranked.

However, this ridicule is unfair.

The problem here is that Colin sent a v2, ignoring my suggestion to add
a fixes-tag without mentioning that my suggestion was in fact ignored
(and why). That is a sure way to invite someone else to point out what
seemed like an omission. Which happened. And then this farce ensued.

So, Colin, take a long look in the mirror and direct your sarcasm in
whatever direction you feel appropriate.

I also maintain that noone writes code like this on purpose (at least
not without some ulterior motive). This is the kind of stuff that cause
problems and wastes time later when someone mis-reads the code. You three
people, with all those commits, should know that. My point is that this
is more than just cleanup and is indeed fixing a bug. Claiming otherwise
is just silly. The compiler is not the only consumer of the code.
