First, sorry about the late reply, I've been pretty occupied with
various things lately.

I've not taken a good look at your changes yet but the ideas that you
propose seem valid enough to me.
With 1.1 planned for release somewhere soon, it's probably a little
late to put the changes in 1.1,
but for the next version I think we can push some, or all of your
ideas and changes into the main repo.
