Yeah, sorry for dropping some of these older patches. I admit they
aren't really on my radar anymore. So please do ping them if you want
to get them integrated. But I believe we never fully finished the
discussion about whether or not to adopt gnulib for things like this.
Which I think is a better idea than having to maintain our own
versions.

Cheers,

Mark
