And it was. I forgot to thank you after I did it. :-)

No, that says that this is why we have a patch manager, to ensure that
stuff doesn't get dropped. Patches aren't ignored without comment
just because they aren't interesting -- this is a busy project, and
sometimes folks don't respond about a particular thing because they
assume that surely someone else will. Enough rounds of that, and
eventually things fall through the cracks.

That's why we have Sander taking care of business (and doing a great
job, I might add). When patches find their ways into the issues
database, there's no ignoring them -- their in your face, forcing you
to at least assign them a milestone. It was because your patch was
turned into an issue that Karl saw it today, and drew my attention
toward it. And now, it's been reviewed and applied.
