Yeah, and if that's so, then I'm OK with calling it EXPENSIVE and moving
on with our lives. And I guess merging this is one way to find out, if
anybody screams. The stakes are low enough that I don't mind doing that.

Yeah, that about matches my feelings. But if Thomas wants to wrap it up
as a patch, I don't mind seeing what happens (and I think with the
suggestions I gave earlier, it would be in good shape).
