I also linked to the previous discussion on this mailing list. My
reading of that was that many people wanted the benefit that this
brings, but that the implementation wasn't right.

I can see your point here, and perhaps I should have written to the list
to discuss it first.

Perhaps I misspoke. I should have said that the current solution does
not suffer from the issues that made the previous solution unacceptable.
Therefore I'd like to ask a few questions:
1. Are there any objections to the approach that have not already
been raised in the thread?
2. Does anyone feel that the objections mean that this approach
should not be adopted?
3. Are these changes appropriate for this stage of the release cycle?
