Since this subject is a bit sensible, and Thomas has valid concerns about
this feature, it would be nice to hold on this until Thomas and Peter,
and others, have fully commented on this.

This is the best-so-far idea that we've discused with Spenser and Peter
on IRC, but is far from ideal. If anyone has a better idea, then do not
hesitate to speak (speak now, or be silent for the rest of Eternity! ;-) )

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
