Good point.  And GSoC may be one of the few times we can get people to
do that kind of work.  Other than Simon, of course.  ;-)

I just worry about any feature which doesn't get as far as a
user-visible implementation.  If someone doesn't do the rest of the
parts soon, such features tend to atrophy because nobody is using them.
