Ok i haven't looked at the trac comments in a while so i may have missed
some comments about the patch there.
The only thing asked was why it had never been committed to svn which 
you answered.
I had no idea anyone was even working on a better way to do it and i 
follow the mailing lists pretty closely must of missed something.
I'm sure it's easy for you to apply custom patches but for us less 
"fortunate" it's not. As soon as svn changes much the patch won't apply 
anymore and i have no idea how to fix it :(
Anyway no one was complaining just wondering why it wasn't committed. 
Thanks for informing us.
