Right. I suspect that leaving this up to X is probably the right thing 
to do, but I want people to understand that saying "Oh, X already 
handles this in many cases, so it'll be easy to have it deal with the 
others" isn't necessarily true. It's going to take some time to 
integrate the same level of functionality into X.
