yeah, you nailed it. I spent considerable time updating the st-patches
over the last couple of months, and only few joined me in the "fight",
like Joshua Haase, David Phillips, Ivan Tham and Anders Larsson.

In certain respects, the st patches could use another update. Even
hunk-differences can break someday after more commits. Maybe I'll
work on a way to automate the process somewhat. :)

To everybody else: Stop painting pictures here on the ml and actually
help improve the patches. In the end, only the one who does something
gets to decide how it's done.
