I understand that is frustrating, but I did read that discussion before
starting to work on my patch. Also, Tobias worked on it last August.

In both cases, there were some questions about the changes, and then the
patch authors stopped working on the patch. Now, tcsh is blocking
core-updates, so I decided to try updating tcsh.

It's hard to take a pre-existing patch from somebody else and try to
figure out what parts are necessary, which parts can be discarded, which
parts should be adjusted, et cetera. Especially for a complicated
package update that requires adjusting patch files.

It's a lot easier to try the upgrade from scratch and fix problems as I
find them.
