That's great, thanks.  I'm closing the bug with this post.

The patch works fine, too, thanks.  But I got bogged down on the
copyright assignment sort of things for the patch.

Have you signed copyright assignment papers for Emacs?  (I think you
have, judging by the number of commits in your name, but I don't know
where to look to check.)

Otherwise, it would appear that your patch is a "trivial" patch, in that
it is less than 15 lines long.  But I think that only applies when the
total number of lines you've contributed to Emacs is less than about 15.

So, sorry about all this non-creative stuff, but would you please tell
me whether or not you've signed an Emacs copyright assignment.  Then I
should be able to commit your patch.

I don't know (and haven't cheated by researching it ;-), but if I had to
guess, I'd say Paul Eggert.
