And in further discussion with dholbert, we decided *not* to do this -
the upgrade story is *way* too uncertain to rely on, so there's not a
good reason to try out carve out syntax.  If we do 1-axis subgrid in
the future, we'll do so via a different 'display' value, or another
property, or something else new like that.
