Sorry, I was too busy this weekend and had only time to reply to the
other message.

I intended to commit changes tomorrow, or if not possible on Tuesday. I only
made some cosmetic changes to your patch (other committed things were about
policy clarifications, unrelated to this). I did not even yet wrote last
changes coming from this thread, so if you have them ready feel free to
commit them. I will do the cosmetic stuff later.

Otherwise I will try to put everything together tomorrow, commit changes and
prepare a pre-release for further testing. Will look first tomorrow
(around 12:00 CET) if you already committed changes.

Thanks for your help with the jed stuff.
