I'd like to stress that last point. Ilya, please do consider
contributing a patch. As you say, it is technically trivial, but
probably too much effort for any by-standing volunteer. I only committed
the original patch because I considered the feature "mostly harmless",
and because it had been sitting on SF for several years. I certainly
won't touch this unless
a) somebody reports a REAL bug, and Jeremy doesn't fix that, or
b) somebody contributes another patch.
Actually writing a patch, and testing it (including the two
recompilations that will take) is too much effort, so I rather
write a longish email seeking volunteers...
