Hi Michael!

At the moment I have no idea how the installer actually works. I'm
just profiling it and replacing slow stuff by slightly less slow
stuff. Maybe some time in the future, I might try to do some changes
that require a deeper understanding of how it works.

Yes, of course. The patch is released under LGPLv3+.
