I disagree. I think correctness should always be more important than  
efficiency, especially for RTL functions (and in particular when it's  
about debugging helpers). Saying that "someone will fix it later for  
corner cases" usually means that no one fixes it, everyone forgets  
about it, and then at one point there is a bug report and someone  
spends half a day figuring out why something doesn't work (to find out  
it was basically intentional and left as an exercise for someone  
else). I've been there many times already.
