sorry for the lack of feedback. During the last weeks I've been trying
to deal with the backlog we have, with mitigated success :) (not too bad
on pull requests, not too good on issues).
Anyway I must confess that having an identified issue in your request
made it fall down the priority list :)
Also, as you note (and this is a pretty general remark here), mixing
various changes in a single pull request tends to delay treatment
further, as the review is less "focused". I could (and do sometimes)
cherry-pick changes, but when I'm doing so, I'd rather be sure the other
ones are to be discarded. Otherwise I'm wasting everybody's time with
useless history rewriting.
Bottom line, shorter pull requests will get faster merge/feedback :)
Anyhow, I plan having a look at your code in the coming days.
I must rule with eye and claw -- as the hawk among lesser birds.
