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.
