Cool, thanks, added.

Please make sure contributors have signed the copyright paperwork
*before* you accept their code.

It's not a serious problem.  But could you send an email to
<assign@gnu.org> telling them about your alternative email address?
They can then add it in the database, so it's easier to check and will
avoid wasted work down the line when someone needs to check paperwork.

IIRC Eshell tries to offer a similar functionality to coterm, tho in
a fairly different way.  I hope the two can be consolidated at
some point.
