well, i went ahead and did it.  it works well enough for me, but as this is
still essentially a hack, we may still want to go with a more elegant
solution later.  anyhow, here's the patch for this if anyone feels inclined
to commit it...

btw, what's the status on my ParameterParser patch?  is that going to get
committed?  if no, can i get some feedback on why not?  if yes, when?  there
seem to be an increasing number of people using it, and the patch does
revamp the api (much for the better IMO).  so the sooner it gets in there,
the easier the adjustment should be.
