No, I unfortunately don't remember. But maybe we should get your
patches merged first, they were submitted first, and they look good,
and they solve some of the problems. So just let's get your patches
merged, and we'll fix/improve later on. It doesn't make sense to
"block" your patches just because I did some other related work that I
never submitted.
