Subject: Re: [PATCH] lisp/ob-core.el: pass expanded body to org-confirm-babel-evaluate

Hi Kyle,
   Sorry for the slow turnaround time on this one. Having now tested
it, I think that your solution is a much better one for the time
being, so please go ahead and apply it. From this discussion there are
a number of good options for improvements in the future, but my
priority would be to get the expanded version of the body passed to
org-confirm-babel-evaluate asap with as few disturbances to the rest
of the code base as possible. Best!
