I honestly can't understand what the point of this is, and I mean that
on multiple levels.

First of all, there's not a coherent description of the problem you're
solving with ~700 lines of code and the treatise you wrote here instead
of a changelog.

Second, is the point here to distract folks from testing the branch in
the tip tree? Or, is it to show appreciation to maintainers by giving
them more of the thing they love: code to review?
