Thanks for that. BTW, I don't know if this is important or not but that new
patch-0.9-current complains about a small number of missing files when
applied against the stock 0.9 tarball sources. It seems to be a CHANGELOG in
the src directory and some items pertaining to format tests (so I'm guessing
they're not important).
