While I think it's be fair to consider this a regression, I'm leery of
restoring the original behavior of stripping the brackets given how long
the current behavior has been around.  Instead I think it'd be better to
update the documentation and tweak the output on colview's end.

However, for the record, when I restored this behavior locally, here
were the adjustments needed to make the tests pass.  (Of course,
restoring the behavior likely introduces other issues that are not
caught be the tests, not to mention third-party code that relies on
brackets being included.)
