If you would like to commit this to VCS it is perfetcly fine for me.

Fine as well.

As I said I was not specifically picky about this because of its close
to zero relevance in practical cases.  Any means you will try to enhance
this is fine for me.  Once done either upload your changes to
experimental or ping me if you are finished with your enhancements and I
can go for uploading if this saves your time.

Kind regards
