Thilo,

thanks for your effort. Could you please open a new entry in Bugzilla, 
mark it as [PATCH] and add the diff file with your changes. This ensures 
that the sources and the information will not get lost in the huge 
universe of mailing lists. As soon there is time, one of the comitters 
will review and decide if it should be committed.
