Hi Steven,

Looks very good to me. I pushed your patch to master!

It is very good that this finally gets sorted out. Thanks!

I think that this one will be for 3.4.0 though and not
for 3.3 since this is past the rc-stage and packagers
have probably adapted their packaging to 3.3.0 already.

Cheers - Michael
