This feature is a hard requirement for some organizations, but
not all, and probably not even most. It also seems to be on the
other side of a clean break, i.e. we can easily defer it to 1.6
(which I'd like to see as a smaller, polishing release, following
1.5 by no more than 6 months). And it's probably time we start
identifying the features that we should push back to 1.6.

I'm not arguing against having it in 1.5, but as one of the
biggest (if not the biggest) agitators for this feature, I
thought I should go on the record as being OK with deferral.
