Duly noted, thanks.

Indeed.  However, you didn't explain why, which is completely natural  
in a summary email that's painting the "short version".  That left  
people with a justifiable curiosity about why the naive solution  
(having a default implementation of this hook) wouldn't work.   
Between your latest message in this thread and reading api- 
handlers.html[1] I now fully understand.  Thanks.

Speaking only for myself (and probably Dmitri), let me add that I'm  
not out to get you, blame you, or prove you wrong. ;)  I love you and  
deeply respect your work.  I only wanted to give Dmitri the benefit  
of the doubt, and to learn from your efforts.
