That's kind of you, but it would be stupid if two of us would go on and
code the same thing (unless we shared the job properly -- though
this particular problem seems to be need of an "atomic edit"...).

You seem to be in gear, feel free to admit if in fact that's not the case

I wanted to get away with a ncp -> mp style shadowing scheme (instead of
an ncp -> ncp one).  It's questionable if such a scheme would be generic
enough (seeing your examples with arbitrary f_oo => Foo, fo_o_ => fOO,
. .. mappings).

And I thought it could be done by not much more than cutting out the hunks from
your patch and inserting elsewhere; now I see it's not that easy.

I do have now other ideas which are might be worth for more interest,
I'll post them soon as an answer to the appropriate post.
