.. but again, DO NOT APPLY THAT MERGE FIX, because before it is merged
into my tree, it would be wrong and wouldn't even compile.
So just point out this semantic conflict in the pull request.
I'll see it myself when I do the test build, and I'd fix it up even
without that, but this is one of those "make sure everybody is on the
same page" things so that it doesn't fall through the cracks and
everybody knows what to expect.
