I too would be very happy to see this patch go in.  It means buildroot can
be a more generic build system allowing people to easily move from version
to version.  But also allows people to use it to build their own packages
that are not going to be ever part of the open-source world, or are so
specialised as to be of limited use to the main buildroot community.
