is that already in the 0.5 branch? If not, would that be a candidate for
backporting if someone would take the effort to prepare patches?

If yes, I could clean up the debian patch queue for inclusion in the 0.5
release branch (but most likely not before my the end of my honeymoon
trip -- I'll be available again mid-to-end of September)

Speaking of that, what's the status on the 0.5.1 release? Is there
anything we can help you with that?
