I don't really have any *good* reasons to argue.  It is just that my gut 
reaction is that this is an awkward solution.  The problem is related 
directly to the "interfaces" parameter implementation, so I feel that the 
solution should be there too.

That's a weak argument at best (even with the wind behind it), so I'll 
shut up now.  ;)
