Let's please keep the discussion calm and civil, everyone, and keep things
in proportion. This is precisely what alpha releases are for - we have time
before beta (Nov 24) to tweak the API. It's a fairly minor feature that

acceptable for more developers.

I'll try to find time to review this again, and others are free to do so
