I'm fine with this, and it clearly works fine for me. Out of
curiosity, though, is there any difference here other than it being
more usual Python style?

We've struggled a bit in the past toeing a line between trying to
follow "normal" Python style versus adapting it a bit to be more
"kernel-y". Experience thus far has actually been that going out on
our own has caused more problems than it solves, so I'm all for this
change, but I do admit that my brain does understand the older code a
touch more easily.

In any case,
