Why is it not simply acceptable for you to use your code? I presume you are implying that this would be useful in the stdlib, but you'd need far more than a single use case to justify that.
Well, that's it basically. I thought I'd offer it - if it isn't considered generally useful (and the reactions so far imply it isn't, tbh) it's no skin off my nose. I was just surprised it wasn't already available.
