Thanks for sharing this! I added some comments/suggestions on the ticket
for those interested.

On a side note, it's still not clear if we should do the discussion here on
the dev-list or just call attention for a particular issue/ticket and then
continue discussion on JIRA, but I find the latter more appropriate to
avoid spamming those not interested, and only update here if there are new
developments in the ticket direction.
