OK, thanks a lot to Brian for the careful code review!

This is now merged into trunk.  Some small fixes remain to be done,
but I want this in the hands of the frontend authors sooner rather
than later.  The remaining cleanups shouldn't affect the public API.

Please let me know if you find any problems with it, esp. Evan who's
likely the first who will merge this...
