I looked at a number of them:
Applied after slight modification.
Applied after removing the note about debian.
Applied in 52efeb8 after some change. Instead of unsetting blankerprg on
no argument, it will show the currently set blankerprg. To unset, use ''
as the argument. I have updated the man/info page accordingly.
eh, I like that message :)
I think 256 is a bit too excessive. I am going to increase it to 128
instead, which I honestly think should be more than enough.
I am also considering increasing the oft requested window limit. That
will probably require a bit more work than just changing the define.

Error" from launchpad.
I plan to start looking at the fedora patches next, and the rest of the
