 True, but that does sounds more like 2.3 stuff. I don't see it
happening in 2.2 timeframe.

 I'm somewhat undecided if we should just not include any iteration
support at all at 2.2, or should we include something like my patch
for situations where modder desperately needs at least some kind of
iteration support.
