I'm not averse to any of these suggestions, but I'm worried that
another round of changes might be a bit much to get done for 2.0.10
and 2.1.3.  Release of these is already way overdue.  Shall we stick
with what we have and work on a new way for 2.2?  The new way can then
be backported to 2.1 and 2.0 under less time sensitive conditions.
