PS I would add a note in the changeset Summary to say that the change 
includes a small cleanup in such and such file to have it documented 

>>>> thread.cpp
>>>> - only bracket changes. Don't include in thins change.
>>> I had debugging code in here and so left the 'correctly' formatted 
>>> code after removing the debugging statements. Since I've already 
>>> been thanked for doing this - I would leave it.
>> Sorry for being persistent but we think this is not a good enough 
>> reason to leave it in.
