The question is, do we have someone who is willing and able to maintain
it? One who will fix bugs reported by users in case there are any ...
So far people just said they want the patch, also at least one said
that he wouldnt be able to maintain it. I do not remember anyone
volunteering to maintain this patch ...

Distros are carrying alot for years ...

My general rule of thumb is nowadays, if something doesnt work and its not
obviously my own fault, it tends to be the vendors fault more often than
upstreams ...
