 Okay, I've now re-read this long, confusing ticket and I now agree that
 the patch Kevan already applied to make {{{H}}} be {{{0}}} during repair
 is correct. This means that repair processes always try to make progress
 (principle 2 from comment:26) instead of trying to conserve network
 bandwidth (principle 3 from comment:26), but upload processes (which
 aren't repairs) choose principle 3 instead of principle 2.

 Also, yes, we really ought to fix #614 by defining {{{healthy}}} as
 "satisfying the servers-of-happiness level that my user has chosen". :-)

 I don't think there's anything else to do but add a [source:NEWS] entry
 and then we can close this ticket. Does anyone else who is reading this
