Right now we have approximately seven zillion combinatorial explosions
of QA, so one more on the pile is not going to make much of an
appreciable difference...though it could spell all kinds of fun for
image composes, I suspect.

Still, I don't see how that's really worth doing instead of just using a
virtual provide. The OP's reasoning for not using a virtual provide
sounded rather specious to me. The two things are functionally
equivalent so far as I can see. Just different syntax.
