The feature that was added here was iirc part of the list of features we want
to have for 1.2. I have tested this patch heavily and found and fixed some
problems that have been in fileops.c before applying the patch.
If I wasn't interested in getting 1.2 out as soon as possible, I wouldn't work
so hard for it. What bugs me is that only very few people actively help to get
this release out, while lots are complaining.
Ok, now back to some productive hacking...
