No one besides me and Drew has commented so far, and we both seem to
be in favour of the above patch.  Drew had some suggestions for
improvements which I've incorporated into the below patch.  I also
took the time to just make it much shorter and simpler (down to two
sentences now).

Are there any objections to pushing this patch to the release branch?

Best regards,
Stefan Kangas
