Sure.  Adjusted.

Gladly.  That's what I would have done in code I own, but there is a
braced single-line "else" block just above, so I presumed that the
style was "always use braces".  (I think we have the same preferences,
since I too would use braces around the single-line "else" in that case,
though not if the "then" block had also been a one-liner.

No problem.

Will do.
You can tell that I'm too accustomed to posting FYI-patches
that I will shortly push -- or that I'll push upon review.

Preaching to the choir ;-)
