True. The solution originally suggested by Shadih is not acceptable, however.
I wasn't stating "it has to be thus, or I won't accept the change". I was merely
throwing out some ideas that those who actually care about this and wants to
contribute a fix can use as a starting point.

Yours is a good solution too, ofcourse. It will be interesting to see what the
final code looks like :-)

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.
