That's great!  I'll bet it would be a useful reference and starting
point for potential implementers (myself included).

I have to admit that this feature isn't top priority for me at the
moment (-exec, although not ideal, works well enough for my current
needs), so there is no hurry.  But I would like to help implement it
eventually and I do think your code could be useful (to me and others)
if you have a chance to post it.

Thanks for starting on it and for jumping in on this issue!
