+1 in concept, haven't reviewed.

Test drove and looked good, but wondering if we should have a single
merging switch in the trunk version and only flip it when we backport
directly?  I only worry about divergence between the two and the
cost/risk of manually merging if there is continued churn.   It did
not look especially clean to make the merge respect a big on/off
switch though either.

I'd also like to dump the MaxRanges after it stews a bit, in a
separate proposal, as the conensus in an early thread was that some
bound beyond header length was desired.

I put a kludge in for this that at least keeps it from blowing up on
old releases/versions.
