Actually, the 'IDEA' wasn't bad, but from the comments I've recevied
(and the excellent suggestions about better ways to do it) I think that
the patches are actually not a real great implementation.

I still think that some kind of functionality like this would be a
boon, but I need to think on how I need to implement it better.

If I were to just say 'Nevermind', would anyone be upset?

I will continue to add this functionality as a patch, but I will work
on improving the implementation later.

In the mean time, I have to try and get a FAQ out.
