I dropped the ball on this one back in July, so here's an attempt to
revive this thread.

I spent some time fixing the remaining issues with the prototype patch I
posted earlier, and rebased that on top of current git master. See attached.

Some review of that would be nice. If there are no major issues with it,
I'm going to create backpatchable versions of this for 9.4 and below.
