Please note my update to this bug in comment 13; I'm interested in
whether the option I've gone for is deemed acceptable, and have offered
a fallback position there that may be better both than the current
situation and than dropping the feature entirely (which has its own
problems, since in some ways this was a bug fix not a feature).
