I think you may be alone here. If I read Mark's comment correctly, Rev
hasn't used that message in a long time, and looking through the MC IDE
it seems it's been dormant there as well in favor of checking the
result, since at least half a decade ago.
It'll be tough to make a business case for reverting to the message
after all this time, esp. given the convenient immediacy of just
checking the result.
Look at it this way: Sure, it's extra work, but you do it once, it only
takes a few minutes, and it's done forever.
