It working right now isn't the only thing I'm concerned about, though
like I said further up the thread it's possible this is all just me
having too long a memory.

Sorry about that, I hadn't realised you were particularly attached to
the issue.  I do generally drop people doing global stuff with no
particular obvious interest in the specific topic on new patches since I
know I sometimes get a bit fed up of being CCed on random things I was
tangentially involved in at some point.

I guess since I've offended you so much already there's not much harm in
saying: it's always much better to send changes in a form that can be
directly applied with tools like git am.  Appending a patch to the
bottom of a mail requires something like hand editing the commit after
it's been applied to extract the changelog.  Not sure it actually made a
difference in this specific case but it can be the difference when
you're not sure about the approach taken, especially for small patches
where it's quick and simple to write and test the replacement.
