I'm really glad to hear that!  I was hoping that this would manage to
make its way into 2.12.  Because it is mostly new code, it is unlikely
to cause nonobvious regressions, and so it's great to have it out there
for people to try.

I honestly haven't reviewed this myself because you've been doing such a
great job.  I've been looking at it for the last few minutes and I have
a few minor comments that I'll send along soon.  From what I see so far,
my suggestions should be easy to incorporate and should not delay
applying this.
