I agree in principle. But as I said, I ran into a remarkable number of
troubles that revolved around text-base being out of sync with entries. And
though you can't *trust* entries, pretty much by definition, you can't make
the situation worse if you update text-base to match what entries says it
should contain.

And as you see, other users are running into this, too.
