Hi Bryan,

It looks like the patch is almost exclusively adding new code, and
barely changes any existing code paths, so the risk of breaking existing
functionality is not that big. So if you think that it's not very likely
that we'll have to change the API when we get more experience with it
(which can be difficult if users have started depending on it), I'd say
that you should go for it.
