Just curious.

a single JIRA might have multiple commits in the Y! branch (bugfix on top of a bugfix). We
have done that in several cases (but the patches committed to trunk have a single patch which
is the result of forward porting a complete feature/bugfix). IAC the this branch and 0.22
have diverged so much that almost no non-trivial patch would apply without a significant amount
of work.

+1.  If it turns out to be insufficient to figure out how to apply similar changes to trunk/0.22
then we can address that as needed.
