Can we do it by Wednesday?  I was hoping to freeze the 1.0 spec on 
Wednesday.  We could easily add it to the spec and read/write empty 
metadata maps in the impls.  Providing a nice API might be a little 
harder.  I guess it could be easily hacked through threadlocals: 
Requestor and Responder could just copy things from/to threadlocal maps, 
accessed via static methods.  Would that suffice?
