I was going to say, just pass the pgmap and lookup the altmap from
pgmap, but Oscar added a use case for altmap independent of pgmap. So
you might refresh this commit message to clarify why passing pgmap by
itself is not sufficient.
Isn't that what I am doing above with that exact paragraph? I even
reference his series at the end of commit description :) in [*]
Other than that, looks good.
