Hey Mitchell,

Sorry I keep missing you on the IRC channel. I check it about once daily
 but you're usually logged out by the time I connect to the screen session.

Could you give a bit more information about the use case? I haven't
heard of anyone needing to do this before. Is it because you've got some
stock ragel parser and you want to specialize it to some task by
redefining things?
