Hmm, I certainly had no intention of doing this for an immediate release,
but I think this is enough of a mess that it should be fixed before a
"significant" release such as 1.0, it comes back to the discussion of
releases I guess. If 1.0 is pretty close then I'll just wait until after
that to present my changes.

Anyway, this would be something I go away and work on behind the
scenes and I'll present it when it's rock solid on at least the platforms
I have access to.
