It is hard to be certain, but your message leaves me with the impression
that you were looking at an older version of the patch. There
are several versions at the web page, you want the latest version,
which is currently editCheck-25feb2002.diff:
The 25feb2002 version includes much of what you ask for: sockPlayer
is gone completely, (you can always get it out the older version if
you want [might be useful when overhauling the test
suite??]), and the patch itself is split into logically seperate
subpatches within the file.
Take your time - as Noel said "Hey, so long as it's not being
ignored outright ...". Thanks for looking at it, though...
