As a practical matter, I'll initially be writing this as a patch against 
2.2, which is where I actually need it.  :)  But I'll port it to be against 
2.3 before I submit it.

Hmmm...  that makes me think of tests...  I guess I won't really be able to 
supply a test for the feature, since that would just be testing whether the 
feature is available.
