The last I heard, Jeff Licquia had applied the patches you needed.  Some
of those have been reverted in the latest CVS snapshot, but the
changelog explains all.

For example, it turns out a "di-discover" tool wasn't needed after all;
it was possible to pass arguments to the existing discover utility to
get output in the format desired by the d-i team.

  * discover/discover/Makefile.in
      Remove didiscover.c.  The effects of
        didiscover --data-path --data-vendor
        didiscover --data-path --data-model
      are achieved with
        discover -t --no-model
        discover -t --no-vendor

Can you please refresh my memory on any other outstanding issues?  I
will open tickets for them in Progeny's RequestTracker system.
