This seems to be based on a somewhat older codebase; I tried to be
careful while adjusting the patch to the current codebase, but
please give it an eyeball to see if I didn't make any silly mistake
in the version that has been parked on 'pu'.

After an positive Ack (or "you botched the forward-porting; here is
a rebased one you should replace them with"), I'd like to merge it
to 'next' and then to 'master' by -rc0 (or -rc1 at the latest) so
that we have enough time to expose the updated code before 2.0.
