Thanks! I added it as a comment to #3819 because that's a more recent
discussion about the same topic:

There's currently a lot of contributions and things I plan to look at,
so it might take me a while to get to it.

If you happen to have a GitHub account I'd appreciate getting the same
thing as a pull request instead so everything is at the same place - but
if not, that's fine as well. :)
