"Exception:  Some dividends may be reported as qualified dividends but
are not qualified dividends.  These include:

* Dividends you received on any share of stock that you held for less
than 61 days during the 121-day period that began 60 days before the
ex-dividend date.  The ex-dividend date is the first date following the
declaration of a dividend on which the purchaser of a stock is not
entitled to receive the next dividend payment. When counting the number
of days you held the stock, include the day you disposed of the stock
but not the day you acquired it. See the examples below. Also, when
counting the number of days you held the stock, you cannot count certain
days during which your risk of loss was diminished.  See Pub. 550 for
more details."

I'm keen on getting this working as well.
The white paper says it's possible but doesn't do much more than hint at
how to do it.

Time to do some serious digging.
