If you drive you have control over the destination, that's fine with me :-)

If you want to raise any part for discussion, either formally or informally,
again go for it. I'm also willing to cut out any of the relevant pieces as
mini-patches for the purposes of such discussion since at least for the
first cut, I may stand a better chance of pulling all the bits together
if they are spread over several areas.

I suspect that on closer review there will be lots of things to change.
A number of updates are truly experimental what ifs. So wale away (or
wail away as the case may be) ...

It might help in discussions if the sorts of suggested changes came in
a reasonable order.
1)  General agreement or discussion of the direction/technique used.
2)  Enhancements, missing elements and other technical bugfixes.
3)  Cosmetic complaints when it looks like the patch is stabilizing
    towards CVS inclusion.


BTW: Thanks for taking an interest in the patch enough to do the legwork
     on pieces you find intriguing.
