Since this patch is self contained and has already been reviewed, I
decided to push it independently. It's unchanged from the last time
that I posted it here.
Since there are a number of people working in this area, I plan to
push patches as they are finished (provided they don't break any form
of compatibility) to help everyone stay on the same page.
