I applied this patch to the trunk.
The test results look fine - but there really needs to be some tests for it.

IMHO, this is a "new feature", rather than a "bug fix", and if I had done the merge two weeks ago,
it would be a good thing to have in the release.

My bad.

Right now, I'm thinking that it's very late in the release cycle to be adding new functionality.
