Nice, good idea.

I think I may have worded my previous message in a misleading way.  The
intent of the attached patch was not to be a robust solution to the
problem, but rather a demonstration of the function I noticed in gnulib
in case it might be helpful to you.

You definitely seem to know a whole lot more about what's actually
involved here than I do.  I'm just trying to grease the skids. ;)
