The reasons for our lack of progress on integrating this are a bit
more mundane: we got busy ;-)

It MIGHT affect whether we can include it in the core distribution. I
don't know the answer to that. But we can certainly let people know
it's there.

We hope to do one more release before the end of the year and will be
starting preparations for this in October, which will hopefully
include someone taking a more detailed look at your patch. I regret
there was no time for this in the last three months.
