Really no problem.  This code is becoming quite hairy
(my fault, I guess), and bugs are always possible,
even considering that there's little feedback about
these features (apparently they're not broadly used).
Its usage is also a bit hairy since there's no specs
for this (the specs allow implementation dependent
limitations, that's all), so the specification of the
limitations can be tricky, and change over time.

The recent changes I was talking about in previous
messages might unintendedly break something, so please
step in if you notice any problems or unexpected
behavior.  It is my concern that new features should
not break backwards compatibility unless strictly
required or highly desirable.
