Right - this list doesn't have to be complete. I agree that it's
better not to do the cleanup in your fix. I think very few people is
aware of this hardcoded list and such startup improvement and it may
worth filing a bug so that this is tracked and referenced if there is
any startup regression related to this (that's what I meant with "follow
up" - sorry I confused you).
