The new API in reslist that switches the behaviour of cleanups cannot be
made public in 1.3.x, due to our versioning rules. But, we could do that
internally, if that's what the list prefers. I leave it to others to
revert my commit and apply the new behaviour.

That's exactly why pre_cleanup default was not accepted. Both behaviours
can lead to crashes (of different kind). So, we must stick with the old
crashes, in order to avoid breaking existing software. Just another
API/ABI rule we have.

In any event, it's good that we have solutions for this. Thanks for
