Not sure I follow what you mean by improvement.  There is more
function added with this last set.  In terms of incorporating Jeremy's
changes I will attempt to follow his suggestions but I'm a little
unclear if you are expecting those to be done verbatim as per his
example.   The patches are rather small and so to incorporate ~ 5
KLOCs would require an enormous patch set or series of sets.

I've been working on the next set and will get that to you soon.  I
don't, however, want to send another set without much improvement so
let me know how I can do this.
