Mmm. What a hassle, especially for a young Chinese student who have
hardly seen any international snail mails before. That's partly a
reason when I say I didn't expect the patch to be included. It is so
unlucky that safety and convenience don't go together, and that those
who actually have an assignment are all so busy...
Anyway, I have sent a request for the copyright assignment form, but
I'm not really confident that I can complete this formidable (for me)
task. Thank for your kind reply, though.

It would be great if someday application software such as gcc and gdb
can use Glib... but maybe Glib isn't *that* portable, yet.
