Thanks for digging up the history. I remembered trying to do this before
during the ident refactoring that went into v1.7.11, but it didn't work
then for some reason (I think it was probably an earlier iteration of
the series, and then I forgot to revisit it during the final one).

I'll add your explanation to the commit message if I re-roll.
