D'ohhh -- busted!  My only excuse is that the lack of these attributes
was originally filed as a bug report, and I suddenly realized "oops! new
attributes == feature request" just as I was checking the change in on

I'll revert the change on 2.4 if you (or anyone) really wants me to.
Otherwise, I'd rather leave it as-is and go fix more bugs.

I don't believe there really IS a GAS SHORTAGE.. I think it's all just
a BIG HOAX on the part of the plastic sign salesmen -- to sell more numbers!!
