Hi Stephen,

I answered to your message half an hour ago - but the answer seems to be
lost somewhere :(

Writing the same thing once again...

Sorry, my fault!

I didn't mean to reproach you anything - I just couldn't find the answer
on the list and thought I should better post it again :)

Sorry for misunderstanding you!

I spend so much time on the command port that I probably got
disappointed about not getting it integrated into the trunk.

This said, I would like to point out that the fault is probably mine.
Your comment on the patch-tracker meets exactly the right point:

  It is easier to wade thru patches if they deal with a single
  topic.  Nearly 12,000 lines of code makes for a big patch.  Something
  this large might be better done as an svn branch.

I would have started on a sized-down rewrite much before had I found 
the time to do so.

Hope it is not too late now ... :)

Thanks for your help & efforts :)
