I think it is a reasonable feature to have.  It probably won't
be useful all that often, but it could be very useful in some
situations.  I know I've hit situations where I wished I could
do something like this, but I couldn't tell you an example
right this minute.

So, I wouldn't want to see fdesfs ditched, but on the other
hand I don't have any clue how to address the loose ends that
Chris mentioned in his initial message.   :-)
