Not stated outright, but an important reason for limiting the scope of
this change (and, indeed, the scope of any patch series) is to ease
the burden on people who review your submission. Large patch series
tend to tax reviewers heavily, even (and often) when repetitive and
simple, like replacing `test -d` with `test_path_is_dir()`. The
shorter and more concise a patch series is, the more likely that it
will receive quality reviews.

Another reason for keeping the scope of changes limited is to ease the
burden of the project maintainer. Patch series which touch a lot of
areas tend to conflict with in-flight topics from other people, and
the project maintainer has to juggle and resolve these problems.
Concise patch series, on the other hand, are less likely to conflict
with changes elsewhere.
