      So, if I understand correctly, these changes made in 2.3 and 2.4 were to get
      more desirable behavior from proxymap and trivial-rewrite on high traffic
      systems, and this caused this (very minor) problem on low traffic systems? The
      patch resolves the low traffic issue, basically reverting to the older code used
      before said 2.3 changes?

      And these changes have, through 2.7, given the desired behavior on high-traffic
      systems? Or no? Your statement "will finally get a chance to..." is future
      tense. Does this mean the desired behavior for high-traffic systems has not
      been seen to date? I apologize if this seems a stupid question. The future
      tense in your statement confuses me. If that _is_ what you mean, future tense,
      does this mean I have inadvertently played a tiny role in helping you identify a
      long standing problem/issue? ;)
