As I was composing this email, I noticed the same thing. I'll double-check to make sure the comment is actually necessary.

Thanks Alex!

That would be even more confusing since the value that is being used is RSS_4Q so I am not sure where the 8Q comes into play.  I guess at some point it was renamed?  Feel free to modify the code however you want.  I was just going through and trying to figure out the issue that had been reported and I noticed it wasn't getting enabled.  It's fine with me if you drop me as author if you guys rewrite the patch and add a comment.  You could probably just add a Suggested-by credit to the patch you generate.
