It would help if sh4rm4 would use the list... :) This patch has been
in the works and under discussion for about a week on IRC, but got
little/no attention on the mailing list.


I'd like to have an issue tracker too. My preference is always one
where you can do most of the work by email if you prefer, but nowadays
I don't mind using the web interface either. I'm not sure how other
contributors feel about this, but I suspect we have some who won't
bother with the issue tracker unless they can use it comfortably via
email and/or a text-based web browser... :-)
