This particular change required a fair bit of analysis (i.e., looking
at over a thousand method calls). I could only devote that time due to
Hurricane Sandy barreling down on me. If I had held off on my commit
and the source code changed, I would have some merging to do. And
maybe no time to do that. So my time and analysis would have been
wasted. With the commit, the analysis has been made concrete and the
community can more forward. In fact, was created to do
just that.

In normal situations (i.e., in the past) I recall waiting for a
consensus to develop.
