Hmm, my preference is over having the details in the place as opposed to
having to jump to another place and then go back to where I was.
Especially when I'm debugging things and am not sure which path the code
is taking or whats happening inside a function. I find myself in this
position quite a lot.

Anyway, as I'm pretty familiar with this specific piece of code and thus
am possibly the wrong person to judge about this. So if it helps your
understanding please commit the refactoring of the function.


Cheer Up!  Things are getting worse at a slower rate.
