OK. I've done my best to live with this for six weeks. But it just isn't
working for me. This was a really major feature for anyone who had it
turned on, and having read the code now, IMHO the hit far outweighed the
benefits of a fractionally less broken architecture: it was doing no real
harm until it was the last of the residual state variables.
So I really must protest. This is purism over usability!
Thus unfortunately, I'm going to have to switch back to 3.0.5 until
the brave new dawn.
