A feature people have been asking for repeatedly for ten years. Go scan
the archive. I'm also pushing for a *generic* do it once solution so we
never have to have the debate again regardless of what media pops up in
future.

There are two sensible choices here IMHO

- The simple sysctl

- Doing the job right

A half way solution such as that you are proposing seems to me to achieve
nothing other than guaranteeing we'll have another pile of useless crap
to maintain forever as ABI.
