Thanks for bringing this back into our collective memory.  The patch
never made it to patchwork, probably due to the formatting issues, and
was just forgotten.

There are no other reasons than Daniele's concerns in the email you are
replying to, AFAIK.  The issue pointed out by Paull should be fixed, but
the fix must not break aggregation..

This is a great opportunity for you to play with QMAP aggregation :-)
Wouldn't it be good to do some measurements to document why it is such a
bad idea?
