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. ;)
