This tool exists in the tool shed, and the best way to contribute to the patch
is to contact the tool repository owner directly via email. As it happens, the
tool author also frequents this list, so I've cc'd him and he may respond
directly to your email.
Tool shed features are planned to make this process easier in the future.
Please keep all replies on the list by using "reply all"
