I have to say I'm not entirely happy with applying a pullreq
with patches that are unreviewed and were last posted on list
over six months ago. Can you post a v2 to try to solicit code
review for them before we put them into master, please?

(Sometimes patches don't get review, and we generally take
them anyway; I do that myself from time to time. It's the
combination of the six-months-since-patches-posted plus the
imminent freeze deadline that gives me pause in this case.)
