 All of your patches went into the sources and are
 present in 0.9.4. Except that little signed integer bitshift
 portability thing.
 The patches are also present in the NetBSD tree (which is
 at 0.8.3). Partly they were already in the original
 distribution, the rest has been applied later.
 (Except the bitshift thing again.)
 So we are not much different from in this respect.
 (There are lots of other differences - cleanup, const,
 format strings etc.)
 > it's the reason why the patches have not been committed until now
 Afaict they were committed. (Except the bitshift.)
 best regards
