    I was starting to think noone was ever going to help out. :)

    If you don't mind, I'll start merging your changes into the CVS tree
    on SourceForge. I assume this is all GPL code, since you started from
    my original patches... I'll wait to hear back from you before merging
    it in, since it's a pretty big change.

    These were features I was trying to put off until someone else was
    a little more active, I have to admit. I've been working on the code
    in between other projects, but I'm a terrible release engineer and
    other stuff got more interesting. It's good to see that someone else
    cares about it.
