I can quickly remove the wincap change (I didn't realize it isn't used
after all the discussions here).

However, since some people were objecting so doggedly, I was thinking
that committing this patch would give a hint that a testcase(tm) is more
useful than just musing.  Everybody who wants this patch removed can
accomplish this by showing us the testcase and the oh so bad results...
