Great!  That makes me happy...  (also happy that the message is
on-topic. :-)

I should say that I thought I'd be able to put this in by now, but I've
been impossibly busy for the last several days, and made some largish
changes to the patch when I was auditing it for memory leaks, buffer
logic, &c..  I could commit it, but I wouldn't be adequately able to
deal with whatever fallout there might be, so I don't think I'll be able
to do so 'til probably August.
