Free of Duty

There’s good news, for me, at least: because, on returning to the U.S., one goes through customs on the Canadian side of the border, and because one can’t check one’s suitcase until after customs, one goes through the duty-free store dragging one’s huge rolly bag. This used to be a pain, but now, in the fluid-free era, one has the opportunity to shove the two bottles of booze one purchased into said rolly bag prior to checking it in.

Of course, this doesn’t work when leaving the U.S., or when returning from anyplace other than Canada. So I’m wondering what changes in the structures of airports, or in check-in procedures, will be required by the new anti-liquid regime.
