@mmodell, what is your opinion on this one?

Qgil moved this task from To Triage to Need discussion on the Phabricator board.Jan 12 2015, 7:47 AM

@Qgil: This is unfortunately somewhat difficult to fix. Since it's a very minor cosmetic detail I don't expect to get around to fixing this any time soon.

Have not seen anyone else expressing surprise or confusion about this detail plus difficult to fix, hence declining.
