That's good to know -- I'll try that next time.

Done.

Added.

Quoted, and check added.

Done.

That was probably just me being impatient; I've removed that line and added 
:expensive-test.

Done.

Using a condition felt more precise, but I have no strong opinion in this case. 
Changed to ignore-errors.

Added.

Thanks for the tests and review! Revised patch attached.
