I doubt that -- not so much has been moved around. It's easy to see from 
"git log --stat -M -C" that only shape_base, getlimits, and machar have 
been moved around since 2007.

The main cause for "Needs editing" increasing is that I elevated

If you have good ideas how to the "move/delete warnings" should appear in 
the web UI, and what the application should do to make it easy to fix 
them, go ahead and tell them. Designing the UI and how it should work is
