Yeah, it was about time. :-)

Ok, thanks. I've tested it lightly here by building a debian package
using debian/rules and applying the patch by hand (couldn't get it to
apply the patch automatically with "debian/rules patch" because the
patch target was missing there... yadda yadda) ...

... long story short, ping me if there's an official package available
so that I can test it too, before it enters the distro repos.

Ok, that's fine.
