Ok, good deal. Thanks for the info, Robert. Do you know who the
current maintainer is for this code? Would that be you? I included the
two authors that get_maintainer reported, but haven't heard from them.

I like this approach and don't mind implementing it myself, but I'd like
to confirm that whoever would be responsible for merging the code is ok
with the change before going forward. Of course, if the code has been
orphaned, then I guess we just write away :)

Thanks again for the help!
