That is very interesting.

I am tempted to put your code in the development repository, and also
merge it with the more recent changes.  Who knows, it may be much simpler
than I thought.

This may be not the best thing, if the patches you used were an oudated
version and Rob already has much improved his code.
On the other hand, if we can create an incentive for some more people to
upgrade to bugfixed 2.7 or experimental 2.7, this would be a good thing.

I am concerned how Rob's stuff would interact with Tom's color-curses
stuff.  Not to mention the configuration issues.  I guess I would leave
that to him...  But using your present code and briging it at least to
current-bugfixed level should not be too difficult.

So, were you using pure original 2.7?
Can you provide either a full code package, or (preferably) a
complete patch against the 2.7 your code is based on, with just the
relevant changes?
Of course I would also like to know what that change was you cavalierly
