I think so too.

I don't know. Not everybody liked it fixed this way: it's not
unreasonable to see this as a quick hack rather than the right fix.

I was expecting objectors to post alternative hotadd hook patches,
then we could compare and decide. That didn't happen; but we can
certainly look to taking out these lines later if something we
agree is better comes along. Not high on anyone's agenda, I think.
