True, but this looks to me like mission creep.  All of this fuss is 
about replacing two lines of user code with a single line.  If it can't 
be kept simple, both in implementation and in documentation, it 
shouldn't be done at all.  I'm not necessarily opposed to your 
suggestion, but I'm skeptical.
