Looks like a nice job, so the caveats you mentioned above didn't hamper
you.  The only problems encountered were:  tabs got converted into
spaces (making applying the patch harder) and one long line got wrapped
by your mailer.

I turned your email into a diff in the "patches" directory, and updated
it to apply to the CVS source.  This will make the feature easier to add
in the future, if that is desired.
