Sure!  I'm very glad you asked ;-)

I've just created the var-tracking-assignments branch, and I'll check
my pending patches into it over the course of the day.  Some of them
are also applicable to mainline, so I'll submit them as such; others
are branch-only for now, and I'll use ChangeLog.vta for them.

I can send you the patches in private if you'd like to get your hands
dirty right away, just let me know ;-)
