how much beer do I need to get this patch applied?

This is a no brainer. The patch seems to retain the current behavior. 
The desired behavior is on a knob. It doesn't run enough to worry about 
the extra cycles to run the conditional.  A superficial googling will 
show that emitting messages when there's no exception is a human factors 
boo-boo, therefore this is a bug fix or at least not a request for 
spurious feature.   Even though the present incarnation appears to be 
(IMO) borked, least surprise doctrine and inertia suggests committing 
the patch and moving on.
