 Replying to [comment:1 segher]:
 > Acked-by: like in #14 doesn't say which patch it is supporting, either.

 Hm, true. The intention usually is to support the latest incarnation of
 the patch, but we should make that explicit, I think.

 The ticket should have the patch, yes. I'll append it soon. There was a
 Trac bug that caused some mails to not being sent to the list (might be
 related to this issue). Stefan has since fixed that bug.

 The mailing list archive _should_ always contain attachments (the
 patches), that used to work...
