Thanks for the patch!  It is flawed, so a good example of how small

package-specific variant of it.  The proper would be to still use

your needs.  Now I'll do my best to fix it to not hurt potential needs 
of others. :-)

...and while we are at it: It won't hurt to also add an *_ALL variant 
which is always applied, in addition to either the main variable or the 
package-specific override.  I.e. use the (also recently added)
