I really think that this is a good turn. I think I have somewhere
sometime argued before that an extension would probably be the
cleaner and more flexible approach (though the API for
extension programmers seems to have severe design issues when
it comes to accessing headers etc. too) so I think this is
really good news.

Another plus of the extension approach could be that there are
quite a few TB extension developers out there, so there is
some hope that the community might start contributing at some

Thanks for the good work!
