So we've got conflicting opinions here. Neither of you have updated
beyond 'tweak', so AFAICT we're still discussing the tweak. John, are
you against my proposal (use TNA, file a bug) specifically, or in
general saying you think the bug will not be enough to eventually remove
the use of TNA (which may be the case, but I'm happy to cross that
bridge if we reach it).
