I have some patches to implement this. There are number of ways to do this
and I am sure my first option will not meet everyone's needs.
I will send the patch in a different mail. Until we resolve the int32_t vs
intptr_t I will not be able to build the latest repo on OS X. So hopefully
the patches will still be valid.
