FWIW, I *strongly* agree.

There was one place where I updated the users of the API and that was
because *all of them had to change anyways*. And it was miserable, horrid,
and required a ton of testing and review to shake out the bugs.

Please, don't "fix" code in ways that can introduce subtle bugs unless
you're working on that code anyways, and do so in small chunks that are
easier to test, revert, and isolate when bugs sneak in.
