OK. Please put a note in the appropriate place that this will be added,
and I will provide wording at some point (but it would help to have a
place to *put* the wording first, so I can try to make it fit in).

(I can specify some heuristics for recognising as well, or you can just
look at earlier versions of my own code, which had some such in)
