FWIW, I was surprised to see Raymond's patch reverted in what looked like a
knee-jerk reaction.  In my view Raymond through his contributions has
earned the presumption of validity for his commits.  A risk of introducing
regressions may ultimately outweigh the benefit of optimization and keeping
2.x and 3.x code in sync, but there is no need in rushing the decision.
 This patch could be reverted at any time before the 2.7.6 release which as
far as I know has not even been scheduled.
