Where do you see this happening?

Yes, I believe it is and we can leave it like that for now.

Ah nice, bonus points for the sample code!

see where that leads, then I hope to be able to commit your patch and we can
have some early testing and see how it all behaves!

Thanks for all your work and patience!
