Hi Giovanni,

Good to see these improvements being made.

One request I have. I read all the commit messages before I saw your emails in
the dev mailing list and it wasn't too clear to me from the commit logs all the
issues that the commits were fixing. On the other hand, your emails here dev
are great and clear that up very quickly. Could any following commits have a
little more context for the changes? That would help in the future and looking
through old svn log's to determine what problems were fixed and why the commit
was made.

I'm tempted to take these emails and put them in the commit log :)

Regards,
Blair
