Patches are here

They haven't been forwarded upstream *yet* because they haven't yet
been polished up for integration. I'm sure you, rightful, wouldn't
have liked patches which look more than ad-hoc customization than
generally reusable code.

FWIW, I also had trouble in finding the actual code which is running
for regular votes injected in a VCS. AFAICT, the working copy on
master differs from the one in git.d.o which I've cloned from. This
seems to make a bit harder to contribute code back.
