Hi guys, I've heard that you're discussing patches 2 and 3 in this
series (I saw that patch 1 went in; thanks).

However, I haven't seen any thoughts from you on the subject. Could you
summarize some of the issues you're discussing? What are the different
approaches that are being advocated?

Since the patches touch a lot of code, it's easy for other checkins to
cause conflicts and so it's difficult to maintain the patches out of
