 Replying to [comment:20 peterwilsoncc]:
 > Looking at [attachment:39157.4.patch], I am not sure why the extra
 conditionals, `is_home_feed()` and `is_custom_feed()` are being introduced
 in this patch. I think new conditionals are best left to #20899.

 In 4.7 we killed all feeds that should not be rendered and missed the case
 for 'home feed on any site with zero posts' and for 'custom feeds' that
 don't rely on WP_Query.  This is an attempt to bring those feeds back and
 fix the regression.  Normally, I wouldn't be introducing new methods to
 WP_Query in a point release, but in this case, I think it's the right path
 forward and has the side effect of solving other problems moving forward.
