while I did get an R-b from Anthony on this one, but ...

... all of these are still in needed of suitable acks (patches 8
and 10 have an R-b though, and are independent of earlier parts of
this series). Patches 3 and 5 have objections pending by Andrew,
which I did reply to verbally without it having become clear
whether these replies were addressing the concerns, or what exactly
the misunderstanding on either side is (and hence which, if any,
changes I should make).

Thanks, Jan
