If by "we" you mean that you mentioned it to me over jabber, then
sure. But no one ever brought it up anywhere else. As far as I know
you mentioned it to me, I mentioned it to tpowa, and it basically got
lost in the shuffle. That's why I always ask people to "please bring
this up on the ML" when you send me things over jabber.

Yeah, I got busy last night. The good news is, though, I convinced the
m-i-t maintainer to add this functionality by default. So woohoo, when
3.3 is released we can get rid of this line (it'll be added tonight).
