without looking at your snippet any closer (don't have Lily available
right here, right now): please see
This aims to be a full-stop solution to extender handling that most
probably offers a superset of your proposal, thanks to Knut's hard work.
Unfortunately, while the code is working, there are implications w.r.t.
