I haven't forgotten about it.  Unfortunately, in quick scans, the
implementation gives me heartburn.  That doesn't mean that this isn't
the correct way to do this, it just means that my initial gut feeling
is negative.

So, I haven't had much time to give this the attention it deserves and
either accept it or offer another alternative.  If it was in anything
other than tty code, it probably wouldn't have languished this long.
