I ran into an issue similar to this with the PEP implementation of my 
file-sharing proto-extension. I spammed it to the list on the 25th, but 
can resend it if anyone wants (subject is "Request for commentary..").

After thinking about the problems mentioned in that posting, I'm 
thinking of just going with 0060.
