 I didn't trigger the issue, so I have nothing to fix.  I would if it was 
me who did.

 And my opinion is based on experience.  Please check the LMO archives for 
why Ralf added this option in the first place -- many years ago.  It's 
probably recorded in the git repository too (I'm not sure if the option 
was added before or after we moved away from CVS, but in any case old 
change logs have been imported when our current repo was created).
