I don't know if you realised what you were including here. Please could you avoid committing experimental code like this to the stable code base. In fact, please commit a change that removes all traces of that "XM" feature.

Done.  Hopefully it will be considered at one
point and won't disappear into oblivion.

Many thanks. Note that I wasn't objecting to the idea of that feature - I can see how something like it might be useful. However, before adding code for a new feature you should explain exactly what the feature is intended to be, and why, and get some approval. Please feel free to keep developing the idea and propose a new feature if you want to.
