yep. I did think about doing that, but I really disliked the idea of
creating a bunch of very difficult to track down leaks.

I know this change is not pain free, but I think some pain is
unavoidable. The previous API was broken (which of course was my
fault, as I put the ambiguity in there in the first place).
