This is, for now, what we've decided to do.

The problems of this sort of gluelessness, particularly, expiring  
glue, can be gracefully dealt with in a rationale and sensible way.   
There are two ways I can think of right now that are not annoying and  
which do not cause us to "decide what is best" in dealing with this  
situation but they are ugly.

That said, for now, we aren't fixing it in code, but likely in  
education. :-/
