As long as any particular patch does not go against the aims of the  
project, I'm happy for you to apply. I leave the decision to you. If  
you are unsure, we can discuss in this mailing list.

My preference would be for fixes first - before any enhancements -  
especially if there is an outstanding bug listed in SF.

Make sure Andreas' changes are credited in the change log.

In terms of code breakage, I've been chatting offline with Peter Bray  
about setting up a Tinderbox server to run weekly builds and tests of  
the plugins. I think we need something like that, especially since  
the plugins are using such a diverse set of libraries, on a large set  
of OSes. This should give a confidence factor when major changes are  
made that we haven't broken anything.
