> The reason I proposed it is that this is a change that touches general code, while all the rest is here to deal with 'convergent' attribute. If for some (theoretical) reason we later decide to revert the 'convergent' part, we still might want to keep the generic part. But that's unlikely to actually happen so yeah, you an go ahead with a single patch.
Ah, interesting, you saw this in the reverse way!
Thanks, just submitted. And thank you very much for the review -- it's much appreciated.
