 I'm reopening this and putting it back on the 5.9.1 milestone.

 A [https://wpdirectory.net/search/01FVGM7HZVE1GPT5DY3ZBFSECW search of the
 plugin directory] shows there is a large number of sites potentially

 I did a search for the one liner `function update($new_instance,
 $old_instance) {}` -- unfortunately I can't use wpdirectory.net to search
 for implementations that include line breaks (PSR-2, etc).

 Given WP can work around it, I'd like to do so. A `@return void` isn't
 optimal for the update function, but I am not sure it is ''doing it
 wrong'' (to use the common vernacular against my better judgement).
