In the case that none of the dev team would like to deal with this "old 
stuff", i still have a "working interest" in 1.4, and would be honored to 
take this on.

And, i *promise*, none of my patches would sneek in without official devteam 
approval ;). i could work out of a separate CVS tree, if that made people 
more comfortable.
