Mike, unfortunately, we don't, can't and have never "pledged" to
commit anything for anyone. That's not the way it works. AFAIK,
no open source project works that way...

But I would strongly suggest that if you "slice and splice" that
they will be given *serious* consideration. I especially would
like to see the optimized time-of-day, request parsing and bug
fixes stuff. I can't promise anything, but I will personally
involve myself in these.
