That sounds great!  I always try to encourage people to write patches on 
their own.  It really is surprisingly easy if you just dive in and start 
reading the code and the comments (plus the Contributor's Guide holds 
your hand through building the source).

Let us know if you have any trouble getting your patch to work.  We can 
definitely help out on the details.

Eager to see your results,
