Okay, yeah, that all sounds reasonable.  I guess all I'm arguing against
is it being an RC bug.  This would be pretty low on my list of things to
fiddle with were I packaging this upstream, behind things like better code
review for security problems.  (Again, this is without the separate images
in the center of the QR codes, which is a different issue.)
