I strongly insist, as before, that we write a doc about all the  
changes and review them together instead of patching something that's  
already broken. We now have at least two changes on the table and more  
to come.

The whole callback extension code is a broken concept that should not  
have been there in the way it is from start. It's a bad patch without  
any architecture thinking behind it. I think we'd better fix that  
instead of adding new code to fix the broken code.
