OK, this is a misunderstanding.  You did mention merging with bleeding,
and I liked it, but I did not expect this would literally be commits
into our main bleeding at this time.  I still hope to release bleeding as
1.8.0-jumbo-1 in not too distant future, and I don't expect the mask
mode stuff to be fully ready for release by then.  So I thought we'd be
committing it into bleeding _after_ that release, with your "merging"
work being merely to reduce the number of differences between the trees
and make your code cleaner (and thus closer to being suitable for commit).

As to what to do now, I leave this up to magnum to decide.
