Could you explain to me what the benefit is of the "gather-multiple offers" 
approach?  Part of the reason why I chose to revert those changes is that I 
didn't really understand the motivation for them.  (I wouldn't have reverted 
them for that reason alone, but combined with the fact that two breakages 
could be git-bisected to that patch series, it seemed like the best option at 
the time.)

I'm happy to accept that your way could be better, but I need to understand it
