Yes, that is what I thought as well. If we put it into the operators we
will have to duplicate the repetition code for each operator. Ideally,
we would not have to do that.

I was not sure if you had decided on a way to do it properly yet that is
why I sent the patch as a stop-gap solution. If I figure out a nicer way
I will send out another email to gather feedback.
