So will this be called a hack forever, or will the naming be revisited
before a release?  IMO, either the feature is sensible, and there doesn't
seem to be a good reason other users couldn't also use it, and hence it
should get a non-hackish name and be documented; or it isn't sensible, and
then it shouldn't exist.  Why the second-class treatment?
