Yes. It looks like a good idea to me. All the cases you changed are
in loops, where you're just moving the check from the end of the loop
body to the beginning. (If there were a case where the new check at
the beginning were *still* preceded by some real work, then I'd say
leave the original loop-end check in as well, but I think there aren't
any such cases, right?)
