Perhaps you mentioned the reference to overload? The needed changes to make the module do what I want are much bigger than what you said.

Which wouldn't be a problem except that the changes also have the disadvantage of not being backwards compatible with the current module. (For instance the returned objects should be false rather than true, which could mess someone up who tests that an object is there by checking for truth.) That incompatibility is why I decided to not offer a patch.
