 > Just thought I'd chime in that Lance and I thought the same thing (You
 can probably see this by reading #17979).  However, this was decided in
 one of the dev meetings and we were overruled.

 Can we bring this up again? I think based on Andrew's feedback it doesn't
 make sense to persist the data longer than a month.

 This patch should take care of that by moving the non-matching widgets to
 the orphan area, one per widget.
