You're right that this commit is a bit too aware of the future, but I 
disagree with the recommendation to change it.

Yes, in this commit there is no possible way that these tests could 
fail. The point is that patches 17-23 all change behavior if this 
setting is on, and we want to make sure we do not break at any point 
along that journey (or in future iterations of the multi-pack-index 
feature).

With this in mind, I don't think there is a better commit to place these 
tests.

This was a mistake. Thanks for catching it.


Thanks,
