Dunno if that's feasible.

There is no "somewhere else" to use.

I see no reason to revert the change.

The reason would be trying to not break third-party modules, like I've said.
But the problem is 1.5 years old and hopefully such a problem would have
been reported by now, so maybe there are very few affected modules out there.


We can simply add sc_writewait to the
end of the structure, which is the normal practice for adding new fields to
existing structs.
