Right, that's what should eventually happen - what I'm saying is it's OK
to defer the hard parts for later if they're not needed right now (in
much the same way that the API was added without an actual multi write
implementation).

It's still ugly and hard to read, look at the line wrapping... the
normal thing is to have preconditions that aren't part of the actual
iteration process immediately before the loop statement.
