Yes, naturally.

I'm not going to argue about this again.  All I'm clarifying is that I
didn't say anything about what we passed to size_binop, which is the
point at which you added assertions.  You implied that those
assertions were somehow inspired our discussion; I was saying that I
didn't see the connection.
