This is one of many potential to-do items for core.  This might or might
not get into a core release eventually.  If it does get in, there will
also need to be a corresponding documentation update, and we'd probably
also need to expand $JOHN as an environment variable (when defined) or
explicitly say that we don't.  Alternatively, to fix the user
expectations aspect, I suppose we could add comments in core, and then
keep these differences jumbo-only.
