Then please invest the time to suggest how the design can be made to
take the next step into account without major effort.

The focus right now is #2381, and not #1167. Making #1167 an extra
requirement creates extra work for Hui Huang. Having to solve an extra
problem that isn't on the charter of his gsoc project is not what gsoc
is about.

I am sure that it is possible to solve both issues eventually,
no matter what we do now. We can still bend the existing design later
if we find that it is insufficent to also satisfy #1167. But if you
have a clever idea that would already help #1167 a little, then please
tell it to us so we can discuss whether it's worth doing it.
But it must not create another huge pile of work, because there already
is a huge pile of work in front of Hui Huang.
