I don't doubt that your comments are valid, however looking at that tracker 
thread and not being a developer I cannot tell if this was still under 
discussion and it looked like, to my inexperienced eyes anyway, that there was 
some dispute or reasoning that still needed confirmation.

So, if this tracker is NOT supposed to be at 'needs_work' then by all means set 
it back to review. However, to save more compilation failures, can you rebase 
the patch to current master as it has been a while since your patch was 

Then I can see what needs to be done.

Danke schoen
