The rewrite I've got planned is fairly modest (I think).  The main  
goal is just to make it much clearer what triggers a particular  
handler.  It should be no problem to keep it in a private copy for a  
few weeks, and then figure out how to merge it back over.  As Ville  
says, it actually has a fairly simple interface to much of the rest  
of the system -- it just takes a string and returns a string.  So I'm  

As I find time, I'll work on that, and if it gets to a finished  
point, I'll post changes so people can take a look, with the  
understanding that it likely won't be seriously considered until  
after 0.7.4.
