prev patch is no good.
Comment 2 Nick Burch 2014-07-30 16:00:28 UTC
It isn't clear to me what the use-case is for this.

Given how long it has been since this patch was proposed, the fact that the use isn't clear, and that the patch no longer applies cleanly, I'm going to close this as Won't Fix

If someone can explain the use case, and why this logic belongs in the text extractor, please re-open the bug and comment
