The idea came up 1y ago in conversations with Adrian when we tried to
make _CID matching work. Unfortunately I did not file a patent for the
mechanism to increase the array size until data fits :). It's such a
revolutionary invention!

Back to seriousness, I'm pretty indifferent on the attribution for it.
What I'm more interested in is a solution that allows us to match the
correct identifier :). My take is that Jason just wanted to be nice and
was trying to give credit.
