FYI, this patch-set is going to be difficult to manage since it was
not sent 'threaded'. As people start replying to different patches,
they are going to scatter-bomb throughout all of the recipient's

If/when you send a subsequent version, could you please ensure you
send the set threaded so the patches keep in relation to one another
as they are reviewed?
