Yeah, it is true. I will apply it only if it fits well in the new
main-loop. I have modified the original patch and now it may be applied
to HEAD. The patch itself is not bad, and the complexity it pays for two
blinks is very small. I have not tested it, but I attach it only to show
what modifications need to be done.

Refactoring the main loop is the first priority now, if you have a patch
serie about it, be sure no any other patch is going to be applied that
could create a conflict.
