What I mean is this should be something like,
"quirk-broken-sg-list-handler" or something like that. Otherwise how
does anyone know if this really is needed or not. Reading this would
seem like everyone would like to do this, as consolidating links
sounds like a good optimization, when instead this really cause more
memory allocations, making this possibly worse performance.
