Thanks for your contribution.  However, a lot of development has
happened since the version you based your versions on (I guess "1.2-3"
Debian?) so your work needs rebasing against current git, and some of
the things in your tarball have already been done differently/obsoleted
(for example _parse_help I believe).  It's possible that someone here
will eventually get to it, but it's almost guaranteed that if the
submitter takes care of it and does the submission in self contained
small enough chunks, stuff ends up in git faster.

To submit patches, grab a fresh clone from git, work on it, use "git
format-patch origin/master" to generate the patches.  Then send them as
attachments, or use "git send-email" to send them to this list.
Preferably include test cases in your patches, see the test and doc dirs
in a git clone.
