I think calling that an "obvious one-line patch" is rather far from the
truth. Jouni, bbaetz and I all had comments - which means that the right
thing to do wasn't actually obvious.
When told that there was need for more than the one-liner, you said:
"Pushing all of this onto somebody trying to get their first simple
patch through seems a very effective way to keep the database structure
dorked." Who would you have do the necessary additional work if not you?
On the other hand, I should have paid the bug more attention and given
more help. Mea culpa - I just didn't have time. Apologies for that.
