You currently have 5 commits in the master tree, a few one-liners and
the largest touching about 50 lines.

Why don't you try getting smaller patches -whose effects you can
oversee- in first before trying to radically change core system? There
is a lot of subtlety and a lot of history behind the way things are
now, and I don't have the time to explain them to the level of detail
you seem to need for being productive.
