My pleasure.  I may explain a little bit how
those last proposed patches came about.

We have at least one known bug in src/kwset.c,
and I didn't understand this file enough to be
able to assess the correctness of the proposed
patch (or of its equivalent variants).  So I set
out to understand the file, something I've been
wanting to do for a few weeks now.  In the course
of doing this, I inevitably noticed some stuff.
This explains the patches, but my first goal
was indeed to give myself the ability to fix
the bug(s) in it.

I'm pretty sure the fix for the unsigned char
overflow is correct, but I'm not sure that the
current tests are the tightest limit cases.
