I agree with Aaron on both counts.  At least we're consistent now.  If
somebody right now wants to use -X and can't figure out why it won't work,
at least they won't go to code, see the comment that -X SHOULD work, and
wonder WTF the problem is.  When the leftover is resolved, the comments
are trivial to revert to maintain that consistency.
