That would help too, thanks.
In the interest of maintaining the narrow bugfix-only focus of .46, I'd rather
defer this change till later. It affects quite a few files in our own source
tree, and there's evidence that it will affect a large number of 3rd party
modules as well.
We can schedule it for .47, and .47 can be pushed out shortly after .46. We
can also include other minor non-core enhancements in.47 (like back-sock
extensions) as well.
