Jean,

Thanks for taking a look at these patches... and for testing them!
They were from more than 7 months ago, so it will take me a little
time to context switch back to the point where I can really digest
your feedback and update and test them again myself. But, I wanted to
just let you know that I am reading your review comments, and will get
to it as soon as I can.
Speaking of which, I have only seen comments on patches 1 & 2 so far.
Any comments on patch 3?

-Daniel
