Ok ... I was not aware of this issue at all! Does this mean the whole
patch needs to be reworked?

Actually, I'd be very interested in this. I think it's a really nice
feature. And especially since we already have this almost-ready patch,
we should not let it rot away silently, but try to get it into trunk
soon. I'm surely willing to help out with fixing some of the
outstanding issues and testing the patch (in addition to my PPC work).

Cheers,
Janus
