I would also prefer some kind of dynamic method, but right now
that doesn't exist.

If any developer has the motivation to implement some more dynamic
method, then I'm sure we can compare and contrast the different
methods.  But let us wait until we have some actual implementation
to talk about, and not worry about "reexamining the thought process".

There is nothing in this commit which will prevent anyone from
implementing alternatives.  I do have my own alternatives in mind,
for instance, and I still intend to implement those (once I have
the time to concentrate on them...).  But I welcome this as very
reasonable working solution.
