Sounds good, as long as the Jira issue is specific. issues like 
"Refactor Derby code" are hard to manage since it's hard to know when to 
close them. Something like "Cleanup code in CurrentOfNode to remove dead 
code" is more specific.

Or if fixing an issue and the cleanup helps, then attach patches to that 
issue, of course putting cleanup/refactoring in different patches to 
real changes.
