famous last words.

Not everyone looks at what's been committed.

There have been 3 trivial patches (one liners) offered for the SSI
byte logging bug so far. Any of them could have been committed without
raising an eybrow. It turns out that none of them fixes the problem
properly/fully. My point is that once something is committed it gets
forgotten, while it's floating around the list, people are more likely
to look at it.

Being petty on the small stuff means there's no need to draw a line
between trivial changes and non-trivial changes. So close to a release,
nothing should be assumed to be trivial. That's my opinion.
