It is indeed wasteful to spend time on something that is already known.
Both callers have already determined both the section number and the
section so why not just pass both to section_mark_present?
One could argue that from an API point of view it is a bad practice to
have two indipendent arguments referring to the same underlying object,
and I would agree, but this is not really a something that has a wider
use so it is more of a helper. Maybe we want to make that more explicit
via __ prefix.
