Just FYI -- it is unlikely that anybody here at Red Hat will clean up
our patch in the 7.0 timeframe.  If someone else wants to do it, I would
support that.

In case it helps ease the pain, on my to-do list for the next round of
Archer tasks is clearing out our patch backlog.  We have way too many
patches in the SRPM; and really only one or two of those are unsuitable
for gdb CVS.
