STM as a concept has so many flaws that I tend to side with Jon (ie. it
should be dropped from the spec). Personally, I was dragged into it as
well, thinking that it solves real world problems. But, as we all know,
there is no such thing as free lunch. Things have to be done the hard
way (ie. one actually has to use the brain while coding).

Thank you for your patch David. Given that TC 3.3 is close to the
release, I don't think that this patch will go into it. This has nothing
to do with the code, but rather with the fact that when things are close
to the release, all changes are more scrutinized then at other times.

But I'm sure that other 3.3 guys will also give it a look for subsequent
3.3.x releases.
