Heh -- yes, Ben Collins-Sussman and I were just talking about that,
after reading one of your earlier mails.

Could you file a 'feature' issue on this, and describe roughly how you
think it would work? I can't say when we could schedule it for
(mostly depends on which developer gets interested enough to actually
do it -- of course, a patch will accelerate this process! :-) ). But
having it in the tracker makes it more manipulatable ("manipulable"?).

I think it's a good idea, though we probably haven't thought of all
the implications yet...
