Those are the changes I was referring to above when I said I'd be happy
to look at them, yes.

Well, any which are not "in a released 0.8 version yet" certainly
aren't. The range checking patch could be okay, although given that
we're getting quite close to the end of the window for 6.0.4 I'm tempted
to say we'll look at it for a future update. Are any of the other
changes you mentioned which are fixed in 0.8 and aren't particularly
intrusive easily reviewable?

As I mentioned, the latter would be preferable as it makes the diff much
cleaner, targetted and easier to review. In retrospect, we possibly
should have raised that for the earlier updates.
