Due to some miscommunication, Erik O and I have both developed
solutions to this. Mine is a stand-alone piece of work for me, while
his is some number of changes in a long patch train. In the interest
of not imposing possibly messy merging on Erik, I'm withdrawing this
RFR and reassigning the bug to him.
