I was planning to do and test the work in a branch, then rebase -i it
into a commit I can cherry-pick to the main branch any time we're
ready.  It's not very important exctly when that happens.  And this
plan is only plausible because removing the directive should be a
change with really good isolation, unlike some of the later ones.

I want to do a triage pass over the bug list.  That's about it.
