If you look at the various patches in


then there is a three-byte saving in all versions from 1 to 6.
Consequentially, the API was changed in those versions (but only
starting from version 5, i.e. the first version created by Guido).

For some reason, the saving was then removed from the patch that
got actually committed (#7). I guess the comment just stayed.
