Thanks for the reply.  I'm embarrassed to say that I am not currently running 
the patch.  I'm running an older version of Myth (r19597 as packaged by atRPMS 
with some additional patches I've created for the Titivillus theme).

I've been working on back-porting the v6 patch.  v6 is the latest patch and it 
looks like it was posted 6 weeks ago.  I'd be willing to test the latest patch 
with trunk and try to get it working, but I'm not sure I could get it working 
in the time frame allotted unless there aren't any significant issues.

It looks like Alan Calvert has been updating the patch over the last year or 
so.  If he is monitoring this list it might be more efficient for him to verify 
the latest version with trunk.

My major concern is to get the functionality into Myth.  I'll do everything I 
can to help that happen.
