I don't think there is a way to do it without fairly major surgery in
that code (though I would be happy to be proved wrong), and if I was
going to spend any amount of time on it, the only possible course of
action I see would be to trash the whole thing and rewrite it
sanely...which I personally don't have time to do, but if someone else
does, please do that instead of using my patch.
