I don't like committing patches based on +1s on concepts.  More on actuals
when I get time, just a few quick comments for now...

+1 on this one, but not the patch.  My question is: is it worthwhile to
keep the format the same as NCSA uses?

I'm not overly happy with this.  It is getting so ugly...

I like the change, but worry about the impacts...

A very total rewrite.  There are still a couple of possible infinite loops
in there too...

Intersting idea.  Still thinking but, like you, I am worried about it.

Like the concept, have to think about implementation.

I don't particulary see this as worthwhile, but I will think about it...
