John, could you please extend the deadline of the feature freeze a little
since I have no chance to commit all changes until Friday.

Basically what I'm doing is the same kind of work as Alan's efforts in 
While Alan is designing a framework to support multiple windows
by adding a new arg with a group of windows, I'm designing a framework
to support multiple regions by adding a new arg with a group of regions.

In bug#19829 I've collected the evidence of commands that need this
feature as a basis for the new design, but the deadlock was caused by the
same question that backpedaled the Alan's design: whether to add a new arg
to the existing functions or to try stuffing it into the existing ones?
