As you have noticed, I've accumulated many of the pending patches doing
minor improvements or fixes into a branch called "for-peter-2013.11".

Peter is on holidays until Monday, and in his absence, I thought it
would be a good idea to gather all those changes to make it easier from
him to get all of them when he comes back.

I'm only taking patches that I'm almost 100% sure Peter will accept, so
that I can mark the corresponding patches as "Accepted" in Patchwork.

The for-peter-2013.11 branch can be found at:
