Ah, this is quite good principle they have.

Unfortunately I was unable to find these patches from
SourceForge/RCVS. The only hit to your name was and there is no links to
anywhere. Neither I could not find your patches using keywords
"edit-c.diff" or "CVS patch". Could you please specify from where there
I find your patches.

Hmm... good idea. I could do this. Or then I use Linux box at home and
connect to my ISP (using 56k modem --- it's only money to phone company
that buys Nokia network elements and thus comes back to me in my salary
later ;-) and do checkout of CVS develompment tree to home machine.

Please point me to source of the source on SourceForge and I'll start
with it.

OK. I try get familiar with CVS sources at home during weekend and let's 
see if I can do this. I don't promise yet anything, but you have got
"maybe volunteer" here.
