I had a look at the patches submitted by Dimitri and in my tests they do
exactly what's intended, i.e. produce a data dump of the extension's
config sequences when necessary.  However, after a couple of hours
trying to understand what the patches are *doing* I failed to figure it
out completely, and I'm afraid that there might be secondary side
effects that I'm failing to notice.  So I'm punting this to Tom, who
seems to be the author of this code.
