I should say, that this feature *is* taking longer than I expected,
though it's nothing to lose sleep over.

I think my estimation of effort was a bit off because I only predicted
the breadth of this change, not the depth. In other words, I knew that
this feature would touch essentially every single library and codepath
we have. But I assumed that because we had nice discussions and specs
laid out before we started coding, that implementing the specs would be

What seems to be happening is that we implement a bunch of code, then
discover that the API needs to be trimmed/rejiggered in some way --
which means going back over ground we thought was already finished. We
seem to be making multiple "passes" of refinement. That's the "depth"
I never predicted. It certainly seems worth it, though. When we
finally finish this feature, it should be pretty well done, having gone
through N iterations.
