Well, I fear total sum of headache stayed constant ;-).
Anyway, producing these patches seems "easy" compared to actually
merging them. You seem to have some experience with this, would you be
willing to help?

would bitrot extremely quickly). I thought I'd try to merge simple (&
small) stuff first, to see how bit it will be.....
