True, but this also applies to code that is affected by the GSoC
refactoring projects. And there the impact is even bigger. In removing
the mix of html and php, functionality is not changed, the code is
restructured a bit. In the end maintaining the code will be easier
because it is better structured and better readable.

BTW : I believe it was a goal of 4.0 to refactor and cleanup the code,
so this seems like a good opportunity to do this now. ;)

Kind regards,
