Hi Karl,

Closing the bug is fine. My patch was meant to be a short term solution
to be eventually replaced by the more complete keyword expansion changes
proposed by other folks. However, I didn't realize that my change, while
fairly minor, causes an API incompatibility, which means that it can't
really be "short term" because it would have to wait for a major release
anyway. So... nevermind.

This does make me wonder whether the API preservation requirement does
more harm than good, but that's a different question and not one for me
to answer :-)
