  Yeah, this makes a lot of them, but the alternative (having non-up-to-date cache in the share-source would a significant issue). In the current situation you fix one bug, reintroducing another. I wonder if we have a "simpler or saner" way to introduce these various disctinction. Let me think about it a bit.

  `visible-hidden` still exclude all the `internal` phase commit that we never want to expose to anyone. (yeah the name is … confusing)
