Thanks Bill. 
I don't expect Saturday emails are not bound to get big responses,
especially on this kind of dry material. :)

I read the recommendation.  Your proposed changes sound fine, and I
understand the importance of getting this into 0.3.1.  Too bad you haven't
gotten more responses to your mail.  But I'd say to go ahead and check in
the changes anyway (along with updating the existing uses of defineWidget().
