For the size limit, yes.
If you decide to write a patch, feel free to assign the new issue to
yourself, and mark it as STARTED.

Don't forget to read the HACKING file, for information about submitting

When done, send the patch to the dev@ list. If you don't get any review
within a few days, attach the patch to the issue.
