Yes, I've been rather scratching my head over all of that: what does it
all really do, why does it do it, what problem does it solve, what's

There doesn't appear to be a Documentation update in the patchset.
Perhaps rectifying that omission with a rather good documentation file
would help people to appreciate it all...
