Okay, after many months of lurking, I've finally set aside some time this
last week to actually finish up the code. (It's been mostly-merged/working
since about a week after Tom sent the mail I'm replying to - but then my
employer decided it would be good for us (read: me) to finish working on a
project which has consumed 99% of any programming motivation I could
muster.

I am attempting to do this in a way that's relatively elegant, and the
code should get sent to -patches tomorrow sometime , after I've had time
to do some testing.
