   I agree.  I'll make a patch for this today.  As noted on the bug  
report, it is a goal to have no measurable impact on any case not  
using MP so some virtual changes were removed.  I agree that the  
previous approach is not the prettiest but as Yichao and others have  
pointed out, it is the current approach in some places already.  I  
think simply commenting on the bug report for things like this that  
could be improved and having them applied as supplementary patches  
would be a most excellent approach.
