That sounds perfectly sensible to me. Not sure when I'll have time to 
work on that proposal, but in the meantime you can use whatever bits of 
my original patch you like. Sorry about the lack of a Signed-off-by line 
in the original post -- I use git for private stuff at work 99% of the 
time and it sometimes slips my mind to add that extra header line for 
public changes. So, retroactively (though if you like I can resend the 
whole patch with this line):
