I agree it should go into 2.4 but I don't think the patches you are
submitting should go in. From what I can see they are an older version
compared to what actually went into 2.5. (I am basing this on the comments
to the functions rather than thorough code comparisons but I don't have
time to look at it more in depth atm.) Why don't you use the actual 2.5
code and make new patches or at least make use of the patches that finally
went into 2.5?

Best regards,

Anton
