Let's proceed as you've already planned. With some good luck, we should be

I'll get this.

This is the former nuclear collision. I've debugged it (as can be seen in
the bug) and I can also patch it, but we need a consensus on how to do
that... As we've discussed in IRC, I'm not convinced on just having
auto_increments; I'd prefer not deleting stuff at all. But I'll
