I don't (right now, at least) have any comments on the patches
themselves, but I can't help but wonder what other wonderful
improvements you've got in your pipeline. I spent at least a couple of
hours on something like this a couple of weeks ago, but had I known that
you were already doing it, I wouldn't have wasted my time.

So, in an effort to not duplicate efforts, perhaps everyone who's
working on something reasonably big (certainly stuff like this, but also
smaller change sets) could put a list up somewhere for all to see?
Perhaps such a list already exists and I just don't know about it?
