There is a lot of duplication of work going on here: at least four
people have done the same. The more people duplicate the work, the
more urgent it apparently becomes that the trunk switches "officially".

When we switch, these should actually replace the current ones, rather
than being additions.

Perhaps not, given that several other copies of that to draw from may
exist. OTOH, I haven't heard anybody reporting these specific changes.
In any case, it's now in Brian's hand.
