What is idea behind basing patch on the REL9_6_2?
This patch implements new functionality and it's definitely not going to be
considered to be committed to stable release branches.
If you are interesting in committing this patch to master, please rebase it
on master branch.  If not, please clarify the purpose of this submission.

Also, please include some numbering to the patch name, so that we could
distinguish one version of patch from another.
