In theory that hinting would be accomplished by the use of the word
"try", i.e. indicating that this is not a guaranteed fix - but you know
what they say about theory vs. practice. I don't really like the current
form, and for that matter I don't think it actually accomplishes what
you're trying to do, but I'm not sure how to make the hint as explicit
as it would need to be without being a lot clunkier (and perhaps more
verbose) than is really appropriate.
