This one has been troubling me too.

I've been looking through the code and like most of what I see so far, and agree
that we need to be able to experiment with it, but not destabilize the base
release.  In 4.1, this would have been entirely appropriate -- but not really if
we unfreeze 4.0.

How about if we create a branch of 4.0, and I check in these changes on that
branch?  If things work out well, we can merge back to the main branch --
otherwise, wel'll have learned what needs to be done to add this functionality
into 4.1.
