Martin,

Could you please demonstrate your sincerity by escalating the 'bug' to 
critical? 
It would demonstrate commitment to really having this in 2.10, rather than just 
'looking at it'. I think you owe it to the developer to make that gesture at 
the 
very least.

Good luck with all the work toward 2.8 now, the efforts of the dev team are 
much 
appreciated.

Charlie
