:Hi Matt, ...then I must be confused! :) ...since I didn't make any

    Nah.  It was my misunderstanding... I didn't realize you just posted
    my patch :-)  I thought you had independantly come up with the cleanup,
    which is where that comment came from; I was simply pointing out the
    interesting coincidence (which it turns out wasn't :-)).  Since it
    was a fairly obvious cleanup in the first place it just didn't occur to
    me that you had copied and pasted it despite you having said so.  I was
    far more focused on the massive VFS patch yesterday.
