Well, if you wait for something from me, it is better to tell me directly.
I was waiting for anything to happen to the patch (accept, discuss or
reject) before submitting anything else.

I can see your point.

The reasonnable way out of the deadlock that I can suggest is the

I can resubmit a new patch that would provide the needed infrastructure
AND some hints on some commands as a proof of concept of what can be

Then you can decide whether it is worth having this kind of thing on all
commands, or not.

If not, I won't have passed 3 week-ends in the parser instead if my
garden for nothing. If you are okay then you apply, and I'll submit some
new patches later on, one command at a time, and when I have time.

Does this sound reasonnable enough?
