Sounds reasonable, thanks. As I said, Patch 1 replaces the content of
the file, so technically the copyright is gone. If you want to edit the
patch to keep John in there, I wouldn't mind though. I rather give too
much than too little credit.

Once the patches are in, I will work on the single-thread series.

Just FYI, my next plans are (as time allows):

- optional single threading (better debugging)
- optional and experimental LocalStatus as sqlite db (faster sync)
- Allow 1-way syncing (safer syncing)
- improve SSL CA cert checking and configure options, ie host checking
- add "accept the hosts SSL certificate permanently" option. (security)
- Restart work on a test suite (reliability tests)
- General sync strategy improvements and code cleanups (speed and robustness)
- Code documentation system (easier code overview and hackability)
- Robustness checks (abort network connection during sync etc) (robustness)
- Examine GMail weirdness (improved interoperability)
