Oooh, I see what you're saying. I split the patches so that if this movement turns
out to break something then bisection will point directly here, but that's a pretty
weak argument since both patches are tiny. And taking patch 4 without patch 3,
e.g. in the unlikely event this movement needs to be reverted, is probably worse
than not having patch 4 at all, i.e. having somewhat obvious breakage is better.

So yeah, I'll squash this with patch 4.

Thanks!
