I also agree that the main idea if the patch is good.
But it has bundled several other changes, which are IMHO

I think we should break the patch to individual parts, and apply each
one after a review.  I think it will be more readable to generate
them relatively to the previous state of the CVS.  So, to have a
``clean base'' in CVS, I took the liberty to back out Paul's original
patch for now.

I will break the patch into the ``individual parts'' and add my
comments tomorrow.  (I'm in a hurry right now.)

Paul, I hope I have not offended you.  I suppose you know how much I
value your tremendous work!
