Right, so I obviously "fat fingered" that and should have read my email
once more before sending. *But* the point really was just the "put all the
parameters on one line rather than 3" bit...

As for who cares; well, I cared enough to actually read the patch and send
a reply, and I thought we needed more reviewers... When I review something
I comment on everything I spot from bugs to trivial stuff - then it is
up to the recipient to pick the things they want to address from the
reply..
