That's also what I prefer! But I think these components might become
a very important point to gain more visibility. How would you like to
announce them to get people taking care of them if we don't have it
in our CVS?! I doubt people will go trough the patch queue when looking
into cocoon.

well, no need to hurry - but the patch was in the queue for ages...
...would be nice to accept this donation - finally ;)
