I don't think that's a good idea.

I just committed the multiply function.  It was trivial.

My feeling about mh-format is that we shouldn't invest much
more effort in it.  If there's a need for more capability,
it should be tossed in favor something else, ideally
something that already exists.  But I share Ken's "Why
bother?" at this point.
