That is certainly a valid approach. I didn't take because at the time
I did that work emacs was in a feature freeze for the 22.1 release. I
didn't want to have the changes postponed for after the release, so I
tried to do the minimal, but still enough for useful work.

I don't have a strong opinion about this, but before moving in that
direction I would like to hear at least Eli's and Stefan's opinion.
