This looks ok now.  I suggest you install it, then we can deal with any 
other matters arising.

I don't know.  That's why I added Phil to the Cc: list.  Phil, any

That might help to tidy up some of the internal code (though it some ways 
it obfuscates what is happening); but it still misses my point, which is 
that the user option -mshort-load-bytes is an inaccurate description of 
what really happens and why we do it.
