The original idea behind ToString is that the printed string is all
you need to construct a new one, provided you stick 'new' in front of
it. Which doesn't really hold up - strings aren't even escaped and
quoted. So, I think you're right about this. It could be smarter about
it and only default to includeFieldNames if you have more than 1 or 2,
but then we get back to the 'too much magic' problem. So, let's go
with includeFieldNames true by default, no matter how many fields you
have. Can you file a ticket for this? Thanks.
