The idea to add this feature didn't show up before 8.2 was released, it 
came up during the 8.3 development cycle.  This project doesn't make 
functional changes to stable releases, that's the reason why 8.2 will 
never get patched to add the %r feature.

Cute script though.  I know people have asked about simulating this 
behavior, and I don't recall a good sample solution being presented before 
yours.
