Hi folks,
tha patch had been proposed by Michal Sojka on December, 14, 2012. Ralf Angeli 
replied to the suggestion, saying the patch was kind of crude - well, I could 
upload the patch again, but according to my understanding of your comment this 
does not seem to be the point here.

Should I try to get in touch with the author and ask him whether or not he 
would copyright it to the FSF, I am simply missing the appropriate 
understanding? Would it be enough to have a kind of written statement that he 
does not care about the ownership of the code?

The way I came up with this question ought to depict clearly that I do not 
intend to adorn myself with borrowed plums by any means ... I had simply been 
curious about this specific functionality and it was highly probable (to me) 
that someone on the list would know more about, maybe a reason why this had 
not gone into the source as yet ...

Thanks again

Dieter Jurzitza
