 config trickery would be an improvement, though I am uncertain as to how
 real browser developers want to handle the download/bundle space vs
 coverage tradeoff.
 > The coverage is vast, including this very Trac. The download/bundle
 space addition is small. I'm sorry, but why the frack is this issue not
 being given the time of day? Please let me know how I can move things
 forward in a healthy way.

 Witing a patch, testing it and, if all works well, attaching it to this
 ticket + setting the status of it to `needs_review` would be such a way.
