Though actually _specifying_ the FF behavior would have been a lot 
harder, I suspect... and I can't even speak to how annoying implementing 
would have been in other codebases.  I do know removing the old FF 
implementation allowed us to simplify a whole bunch of code; the new 
weirdness is much more encapsulated.
