Side note, in case it wasn't clear: I added Jens to the cc, because in the
end my "original intent" probably doesn't matter all that much. I may have
set up the basic ideas and so on, but I never wrote any apps that use it,
and Jens has done most of the actual fixes since.

So give "my original intent" the weight (or rather, lack there-of) that it
deserves.
