Cool, that's a good idea. I was holding off on responding to the other 2 
posts until I'd come up with a meaningful response, but it's probably 
better to acknowledge them :).
In response to Juan's comments then:
1. Already done :). I had several test cases (including one for the 
example you give) committed some time ago.
2. Well I can certainly give it some thought, though I'm not sure yet 
how I'd want to do it. This is the part that made me want to wait before 
responding, since I don't have anything actually useful to add yet. 
Anyway, I'm not ignoring you, and will respond decently when I've found 
the time to play with this a bit :). Thanks for the input.
