So?  I decided that I could _not_ wait for you to reply, because I'd
already waited three days for Tony to reply for his merge conflict, and
there's no way I was going to wait another 24 hours or so for someone
else to reply before pushing my tree out.

*Think* about what time it was over here, and think about what I was
about to do.

I created this by using git merge of the original commit (0af362f844)
and editing the commit message.  As there's no way to preserve the
author date, that's unreliable.  And there's no way in hell I'd re-pull
it before you'd sent a new pull request.
