	FWLIW, I think that a balance needs to be reached for any issue like
this.  We all would prefer a "no hacks" solution but, as Edscott pointed
out, this isn't practical in the real world.  The focus right now should
be on getting 4.0 released.  If a hack is needed for that then it's a
Good Thing<tm>.   Finding an elegant solution can be left for 4.2.

Paradise; can it be all I heard it was?
I close my eyes and maybe I'm already there.
