It is always easier to combine two patches than to split one into two.

With that in mind, I recommend starting with a split version and then
seeing how each patch looks. I think that these are "independent enough"
ideas that justify the separate patches.

I hope not. Hopefully you get some more review on this version
before jumping in on such a big reorg (in case someone else has
a different opinion).
