I have read through the patch and it looks OK to me but I cannot approve
it, you have to ping Honza for that.  Since you decided to use the value
range info, it would be nice if you could also add a testcase where it
plays a role.  Also, please don't post changelog entries as a part of
the patch, it basically guarantees it will not apply for anybody, not
even for you when you update your trunk.

Thanks for working on this,
