Taking Father C's +1 and Peter Rabbitson's implicit +1 (if that's
ok?!), plus my own vote, I will go ahead and pull this into

Presumably the same changes also need porting to maint-5.22? The patch
againt maint-5.24 doesn't apply well, but I've made the changes
manually -- see attached patch. If this is correct (and necessary?)
then I will pull this in too.
