Hey, wait a second. I have been posting patches now almost contantly for
three weeks (or contacting library authors privately) because I started
working on AIX with VisualAge C++ three weeks ago. I tried to fix the
problems as I encountered them. Are you trying to tell me that I should
not post the patches just because a branch for release just happened?
