I don't just *think* there are style violation, I *know* there are. My 
skimming through the patch has shown me that it isn't ready to be applied as 
is. I understand your frustration, but this whole discussion has probably 
cost me more time than to look into the issue myself. I feel that continuing 
like this is simply not a good investment of my time.

I quite intentionally did not take ownership of the ticket, BTW. I currently 
don't have an environment to quickly test this. Even if I wanted to apply 
the patch I'd first have to set one up. I hope someone else feels more 
motivated than me.

CU, Ingo
