There were at least some steps in this direction -- perhaps not
exactly the right steps, and certainly not complete -- in Lite2.

I'd like to see Lite2 integrated one day, but I'm not holding my
breath.  8-)

(and no, I don't have any time to pursue doing an integration myself;
the reason i'm not holding my breath is that since Lite2 has been out,
i've never even heard an indication from 'core' that integrating most
of the changes found in it would even be a "good idea.")
