Well, we are going through a massive merging effort of their latest 3.4
branch into our master branch at the moment.  So this will have to be
done after we have a successive merge, I think.

Still, what I'd like to avoid is to blindly merge their change into ours
without proper review.  A lot of changes have occurred in our code base,
and we can no longer take their changes and expect them to work; rather,
their changes will probably break ours if merged as-is.

What would help is if someone could extract the above two features, and
re-fit them into our master branch after the merge is complete.  I'd
love to look into that myself, but my table is already getting full for
3.4....  So, no guarantees.
