As Sean and Michael and others have said, this is legacy code that could 
be cleaned up. I don't really care how, but however it's done it has to 
be transparent to consumers that we've made any kind of switch since we 
can't make a backward incompatible change in this behavior that's been 
around for a long time and is used for debugging.
