Yes, from where I stand, I think that's correct.  Keep in mind however
that this is both core and brittle, nasty code, so tiptoe carefully.
If you can think of a small test to add before making a significant
change that would help validate what you're about to do, by all means
do so.

Thanks again for tackling the hard stuff!
