Thank you for writing a patch, and I'm sorry no-one has really replied
about it yet, but why not just followup to your original report with a
revised version? How is anyone reading the report supposed to know a
newer version exists?

I forwarded the revised version to the report.

I strongly advise everybody sending in patches that add features or fix
bugs to send them to bug-gnu-emacs (which should really be thought of as
the bug and/or feature list). I feel like I've said this a lot, so
people either disagree or aren't noticing. So I'll probably stop saying
it. Forwarding things there is a bit of a chore, and I may not always

I know emacs-devel has more traffic, but I'm not sure that indicates much.

The bug-gnu-emacs list is coupled with a tracking system that makes
patches much easier to locate, even years later. I'm not aware of anyone
searching emacs-devel for old patches to apply. Maybe people are using
the "keep in their INBOX" method of tracking things though.
