I say simplify the code. The alternative is to add yet more code to
the special-case logic. I'd rather see us remove the special case and
get a real 1.5 GA user to make the case for why it is needed. It was
one thing to add it when it seemed like a harmless optimization, but
given this elision issue, it seems worth removing the special-case
