The problem you're fixing has bugged me for a long time, but I did not
expect a practical solution. I haven't been in the relevant code for a
long time, so my memory may be somewhat stale. AFAICT from my old
stale memories, your proposal should be both correct and practical.
The extra cost you mention above should not be a problem. I like it.
