This sounds like a reasonable plan. I know my patch is deficient, I
never meant it as a final (or perhaps even partial) solution. It
could be part of point 1 in your list. However if you want to
implement 2 and 3 then this patch would not be useful since it doesn't
understand the hierarchy of preferences you describe. I made this
change partly for my own use and partly to learn about how this stuff
