Oh, and one more comment. It is the attitude of most upstream developers 
that copyright assignment is only granted for patches that change a 
substantial amount of code (which this patch does not). Furthermore, I 
won't accept a patch with copyright assignment unless it is also 
accepted by the original author(s).
