Yeah, I considered it, but generally when you're faced with the
question of "fix 30 things" or "change one thing", and it's more a
usability thing, you'd take the easy route.  Not saying it's the best
idea, but it's the simplest.

As for the quote - it's not so much transient handling as max size
hints.... I investigated a tad, but firefox is...ummm... beefy.
