I agree.  In the meantime, I can still try to produce the relevant
snapshot for people to try.  However, your patch has diverged slightly
from the CVS HEAD revision (I had 4 chunks moved, and one rejected).
Should I try to fix up the patch, or would you like to regenerate it
against the CVS HEAD and submit the new patch (or send it to me off-list)?
