 Ouch, that'll cause me a lot of work to resolve merge conflicts.  I have 
updated all the patches independently before I went on holiday last week, 
so that's duplicated work too.  Plus there's some stuff accumulated 
earlier on.

 My understanding has been you didn't consider the latter a complete 
change (and frankly I did wholeheartedly agree).

 Yes, please -- that'll save me a lot of hassle with conflict resolution, 
though I fear that'll be painful anyway. :(

 I guess I'll just send off the e-mail I had been writing but never 
actually completed.  My current state of the changes includes all my 
updates that reflect the points made, but now I'll have to regenerate 
them, possibly by reverting yours, applying mine on top and figuring out 
what differences to the original remain.  Oh well...

 There's a whole lot of important linker relaxation fixes that I reckon 
were not included in the original series plus several bug fixes.

 You are welcome.
