Sorry, I'm a little bit behind on email and haven't had a chance to
look at what you are proposing to do. However if you want your patch
to go in, you should base it on CVS -current rather than 5.0 as the
multiplexing code has been rearranged significantly.

(I can tell that you are not using -current bacause the function names
have changed)
