Good enough for now: I see you're hacking into the __IP global, which is fine 
for the stable branch.  That's something that WILL change, and the module 
approach may need to go, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.  For 
now, this offers already a cleaner interface, which is a net win for the users 
of the stable branch.
