We are not adding enhancements so far. For instance, the patch I've
referred to on WAVE-310 is on a different branch that's not the master
(in my project at Github). So tests shouldn't fail, as long as one puts
them were they rightfully belong.

Yes. Since the effort I forked was more than one year old, one of my
primary goals was "if I'm going to take this task I want to do it with
all changes up to this point". And so I did. I've updated the code up to
to a couple weeks or so. We'll be merging changes from the last week in
M2 and keep up with whatever may land in the upstream project.

Thank you so much, once again. Keep the criticism and suggestions coming
as it will help us to get a better job done :-)
