Yes, but I probably forgot to add that switch that turns on even more
checks. Will fix.

Hm, yeah I think this followed along with my thinking that there
wouldn't be multiple processes provisioning at once. This function
will always write a consistent version of one caller's view, but
multiple callers might clobber each other's writes. I can explore
adding locking.
