Thanks a lot for this, Jim!

I know how hard it can be to refactor an interface like this while
keeping compatible with what's previously specified - but I'm very happy
that you did it!

I hope this makes sense to the TF as a whole too, and that we can
rapidly switch to this form of the description.
