Dear Matthieu,

from now on I'll hesitate a bit more when applying extern patches since 
I often had to revert them (e.g. "rebuilddn" script, WMIC improvement). 
Since there are people who are much more skilled than I in reviewing 
patches (since they work much longer with the code) I'd prefer them 
(abartlet, tridge, Jelmer ...) to give a comment first. So we can 
prevent this nasty reverting if something doesn't fit.

Also, good testing is always welcome.
