It is redundant to mail offlist and then onlist about the same thing but
let me repeat:   We don't know what solutions will or will not work
until we ask.  It is always important to not merely assume but actually
try talking to upstream and see if they might be interested.  You might
be in for a pleasant surprise.  A lot of upstream developers are quite
cooperative if it helps improve their software and if you have
established a ongoing relationship with them.   It might not work for
all cases and it is not expected either but when it it works, it helps
share the maintenance burden.  Simple proclaiming that it won't work for
the majority is guess work.
