Consensus seems not to support inclusion of the patch as submitted.
It is premature to gauge whether a reworked patch would or wouldn't
be supported by consensus.  Obviously, there are some who would
oppose such.  There are likely some who would support such.  And
another some, myself included, who prefer to sit on the fence
until such a patch exists.
