Hey Don -

Aside from v4hn's previous mail; that's what the wiki's for. :) Just
clone the repo, add your patch with a different name and an
explanation. It doesn't have to replace v4hn's. One might work for
someone's setup, the other for another's...

This might be part of the problem. You'd use it, right? It's probably
taken more time having this short conversation than patching and
committing it.
