... and precisely! The discussions so far have concentrated on the
"easy" side of things. Writing a working module would ensure that all
the corner cases get covered. And as a benefit, would provide an
implementation that could be taken straight into the core/stdlib,
hugely reducing the core developer effort that is otherwise needed to
take even the best thought out proposal into reality.
