Hmm ok. Not sure I would like this but it could be at least a start of
a solution for the mentioned problems.

There was another case as well but I can't remember it right now,
Anyway, attached is the patch I mentioned. It's a few months old so it
probably won't apply cleanly anymore against trunk but it should be
easily possible to manually replay the changes.
Note that the patch is in an early alpha state, I only tested it
shortly and there might be still tons of problems.
But if anyone wants to work on this, feel free to do it. I can't spend
any time on this in the next few weeks, sorry.
