Hm, well, if you like.  Although the gradual creep of my
maintainership scope into things I know less and less about makes me
rather nervous.  I tried to convince Balaton Zoltan to become sm501
maintainer, but he didn't bite.

Zoltan, I'm sorry I haven't been following this series closely since I
asked you to direct it to Peter.  If you resend to me, with whatever
accumulated reviews you have, I'll merge it via the ppc tree.  It
won't make the soft freeze, but seems we have a quorum to consider it
close enough to a bug fix, so we should be able to squeeze it in
before the hard freeze.
