Unfortunatly, some of these cleanups do change the binary, as they are
removing wrapper functions.

Anyway, I agree, for a "proper" review, I will show the final, cleaned
up version, like normal.  But we aren't there just yet, that is why this
code is going to live in the staging tree for a while.  Give us some
time to get it fixed up.
