I agree, If there were more people working on the code, then it might be 
needed.  But it’s been mostly Harm since 4.2.7.  If it’s not helping him. then 
we shouldn’t throw obstacles in his way.  Although if someone really wanted to 
do it, that would be one thing.  But to make him pointlessly refactor all the 
code himself?  For who? It’s just him.
