Unless you can get someone else familiar with this to sign off on the
patch, I would have to spend some time studying it myself before I feel
comfortable applying it.

It would make testing easier if you could avoid non-core modules (fewer
modules for people to install to make sure they don’t break things).

It would make testing even easier if you could use a mock object
(preferably in addition to the AE/Tk tests).
