I am all ears for solutions with the least amount of code, so
I formed your suggestion into a patch (with slight modifications)
and attached. If in the future you post code to this list, and I
hope you do, please also do so in patch form (unified diff, generated
by diff -u).

The disadvantage of your solution is that protocol-specific code is
put into generic parts which may make it unacceptable, but that is
not my decision.


P.S. please do not top-post, but instead put your reply at the bottom
of the text you are replying to.
