By the way, the more I ponder this, the more I think it makes sense to
defer (2) until 1.6. But *only* assuming that the work we do for (1)
is a subset of what we need to do for (2).

So the real question is: do you see anything happening for (1) that
works against (2), or that would need to be reverted when we do (2)?
