I had to stare for a while at this commit message, rereading it a couple
of times and looking at the code in order to understand why you're
moving the call further down.

Please rewrite it into something more readable.

The usual structure which you could use is:

1. Currently we have A
2. We need B
3. In order to achieve it, we do C

or something to that effect.
