This too is a good example of when the new helpers can be used, but
please mention the transfer buffers here are that is the primary reason.

Please keep the existing indentation style. That way you don't need to
change the middle-two argument lines just to align the arguments.

Nit: This is an unrelated indentation change.

Nit: Please keep the brackets around multiline single statements since
it improves readability.

Similar comments apply to the rest of the patch.
