Wasn't me... I never worked on the dumpfile stuff. Maybe Pilato did some of

*shrug* ... the reason people aren't getting around to answering your
question is because we don't credit individuals like that, anywhere in the
project. In most cases, we *remove* credits, and just rely on the version
control history if a need to know ever arises. Otherwise, the various works
are from the community as a whole.


ps. I haven't looked at your update, but yes: this means you'd be credited
in the commit log message rather than in the file.
