And you believed that somebody?

BTW, I haven't thought very hard about the impact in terms of
compatibility with existing code.

That's the question: for those four, the solution you propose is an
incomplete solution to their problem, so if there aren't any others I'm
not very favorable to the idea (at least not before we investigate more
direct solutions (like the one I outlined) and conclude that we have to
live with the current problem).
