i don't think it will merge but i can't commit.  and it may be
that whomever is going to do that thinks a small commit would
be better than the overhaul i've done.

there is something to be said for code consistency . . .
course there's also something to be said for better code (but
that's an opinion - didn't like the original).

anyway - the point is, that's someone else's decision.
yours is a nice neat fix and there's merit in having it on
record if nothing else.
