No, this is a ridiculous attempt to justify crazy code. Please do it
right. If the cleanup makes the code more insane than it is, then don't
do it in the first place.

That's not enough. 11/12 is a convoluted mess which needs splitting and
more detailed explanations in the commit messages.

So no. Read what I said: do the cleanup *first* , *then* add the new
functionality.

The WT patches shouldn't change all too much from what you have now.
Also, 11/12 changes stuff which you add in 1/12. This churn is useless
and shouldn't be there at all.

So you should be able to do the cleanup first and have the WT stuff
ontop just fine.
