Thanks for the explanations.
Is it possible to do this as you describe, including the last
requirement? I'd prefer to have a setup with no lose ends, because a
year from now, none of us is likely to remember what we intended to
do, and someone some day will wonder what is this all about.
But if adding the missing pieces is beyond your current resources, I
won't fight; go ahead and commit the changes.
