hmm, i am not totally convinced (but actually don't care) as this leads
to bloated objects which can just do everything and you specify what
they should do via parameters. why do we have objects then?

anyhow, now for something constructive:
you can always create an abstraction [tabread_tweaked~] that is like
and use this abstraction.
if you later decide that you do want interpolation just make the
abstraction to be like
you could argue that then you would have to think of the variability
beforehand; bit you would have to do this as well if you are using
messages (unless you are up to hunting all the [tabread~] in your patch
to add the special message)
