Let me say that some place may a much better place for such new
features than pkgsrc is. pkgsrc (usually...) should just contain fixes to
get things going on NetBSD (and maybe Solaris and Linux), but no new
features per se - we're not maintaining the software itself.

Also, your patch clashes with patch-aj of pkgsrc/editors/emacs ...
