Andrew please put it on the "Andi needs to justify his pageflags" non-path

I'm with Rik on this - we may have a few pageflags handy now but being
slack with them for an obscure feature that can be done other ways and
isn't performance critical is just lazy and bad planning for the long

Andi - "I'm doing it my way so nyahh, put it into .31" doesn't fly. If
you want it in .31 convince Rik and me and others that its a good use of
a pageflag.
