Yep. Looks good.

Thanks. We try hard to make sure that code is as clean as possible before
checking it in, but nobody's perfect. Bugs happen, so they have to get
fixed sometime, and our general rule is to try and fix them as we find them.
Over time, we've found that the ideal time to kill bugs is immediately after
they got added to the code, while that code is still fresh in the original
developer's mind. Digging through somebody else's code later on is slower,
and usually much less fun.

Looks good to me, so I checked it in. Now we'll see whether Bob's devious
mind can find anything else. ;-)
