Indeed, this thread began with a *request* to spec this out. From which  
one might assume that there isn't a clear public spec, just some  
implementations with at least some interoperability - suggesting the  
feature was deemed useful enough to copy, and try to get it about right.  
Which makes a pretty good starting point for deciding to spec it properly  
and make tests so we can ensure interop, no?
