I got an other opinion here.

Did I suggest to correct a coding style “bug”?

I agree that the change could be small only for this software module alone.
I guess that we discuss not only change patterns for this one
but also other affected modules here (besides a concrete example).
The result summary might be more significant overall.

It seems then that you can not get the kind of information you might be looking for
at the moment from me (alone).

Would any other source code reviewers like to provide a corresponding acknowledgement
for concrete changes?

I hope that mailing list readers could offer something.

Did this software module become “too old”?

Can higher level transformation patterns become easier to accept
by any other means?

Would you like to distinguish the possible update steps better to avoid
further confusion around “triviality”?

How much does the omission of such an useful development tool
influence your concerns?

Would you like to improve the software situation in any ways there?

Regards,
Markus
