I'm perfectly fine with this. I had already in mind that problems could 
appear therefore I put the revision changes in a separate commit. But 
okay, there seems to be a problem and you have reverted them. It's 
completely okay for me.

In the future I will be more careful regarding directory content patches 
like this one and will post it to the list first.
