   So far as I'm aware, there's no functional or even performance
difference at the moment (not that performance really matters here,
since this function runs at configuration time).  But it occurred to me
that I'd feel safer doing the optimization first, then the check --
otherwise, if something is changed somewhere in the future such that
you wind up, post-optimization, with a container full of negatives,
you still get the right error.  Call it defensive programming, I guess.

   It simply hides <RequireNotAll>, which people didn't like.  Please
feel free to rename it or use #if 0 or whatever if it seems wrong to you.
