> All right, it's in master

Haha. I happened to be scanning Gmane early this morning and noticed
the commit [1]. As for the feature freeze, no worries. I'm quite happy
to wait. It's in the repo for anyone to patch. I've already applied it
for myself. Who knows? I may have more patches to it before the
unfreeze.

> I marked is as copyright-exempt

I concur. I'd like to work harder before doing the paperwork to assign
copyright. :)

> Thanks for your contribution!

Ted, it's been my dream to contribute to Emacs. Thank _you_ for
Twenty-four years ago I announced a package I called bufset [2], and
RMS tracked down my work number and called me with an offer to include
it. He wanted changes, though. Back then I had a one-year-old and was
consumed with my family and my day-job. I don't regret turning down
Richard. I dumped that package after deciding I liked bookmarks
better. Sorry if this sounds like a silly award acceptance speech, but
I want to mark this humble milestone because it means that much to me,
closing the loop after nearly a quarter century. And I'm determined to
use this experience to keep up my involvement after my last false
start [3]. A dream is a goal with a deadline, and I thank _you_ for
lighting a fire under me [4]. That's all it took for me to turn my
dream into a goal. Three times was a charm in my case. Now I need to
make a new goal for myself.

There's a method to my madness, rambling on like this. Ted, I’d like
to buy you a beverage of your choice next time we meet face to face
[5]. Really. And for you, a Duvel [7] if you so desire. I live in
Colorado and am open to driving to meet you if you happen to be
traveling through the state. My son and daughter-in-law live in
Arlington, MA. We visit them every so often, and I'll ping you next
time I'm out there.

My offer extends to the first person other than you, Ted, who reads
this. To that future reader, I'd like to buy you a beverage, too! [5]
Just contact me and refer to this page. That's all it takes. (Well,
besides us being able to be in the same place at the same time. :)
This is a sort of hobby of mine [7]. (Bcc'ing Drew to remind him I
still owe him a Duvel. Now I know what that is [6].)

[5] Within reason. No premium aged scotch, no champagne from
Champagne, no Belgian Chimay beer, no Kopi Luwak. I trust you get the
idea.
