 I have a candidate set of patches (a 19-part patchbomb, in fact) that
 does a whole bunch of rototill and merges most of your patch, although
 not all of it's quite the same.
 I was thinking about sending this to you but there's probably no point
 until I've tested it all in my own (single-domain) environment. I'm
 currently planning to get that done tomorrow.
