Unfortunately as of now I don't have any. However (I'm hoping it helps) I will
be sending a new version of the patchset, updated for the latest head of the
development repository, within this week.

Thank you so much for providing feedback. Please do not hesitate to point out
any issue you might have.

Yes, you are right. I hope I'll be able to provide faster response to comments
and reviews in the near future.

Thank you,
