I think this is awesome and very important.  But I'd also prefer to
put it off until post-1.5.  I'm concerned about introducing too many
more new things right now.

What if we make a new branch after your other change is checked in?
Then we can do 1.5 development on that branch -- bug fixes, whatever
final testing and prereleases we need, etc.  On the trunk we'll add
new stuff.  This is what I would prefer.  How about you?

I haven't read this patch yet.
Does it work with $(var:foo=bar) ?
