Andries, thanks for insisting.

As Andries says, I came up with a polished version of his patch (17th August), 
but got no review resp. 'ok for pushing'.

The discussion is still tagged as 'open' here, but I admit, meanwhile there 
has been so many other issues to fix that I never came back on it (scrolled 
down that far).

The patches should have gone into 1.17 as new feature. 1.17.2 might just be a 
bugfix release !?

@Giuseppe, @Darshit: WDYT about adding these changes into 1.17.2 ? 

Regards, Tim
