The core developers are quite busy people with daytime jobs.
The effects of the patch can be  quite tricky, which explains 
probably why they have not yet been applied.

I guess Florian needs to answer this one, or peter.

I have downloaded and checked the patch, however I'm not a compiler person.

passed through COM ? 

If either Florian or Peter give their blessing, I can commit the patch?
