That person stopped working on it. It is still on the TODO list.

This has me confused. There was an exchange with Gavin Auguest 27/28
which resulted in a patch:
and my adding it to the patches list:
However, it was never applied. I don't see any discussion refuting the
patch or any email removing it from the queue. The only thing I can
think of is that somehow I didn't apply it.
My only guess is that I said I was putting in the queue, but didn't. I
am concerned if there are any other patches I missed. I see the cube
patch being added to the queue 40 seconds later, and I know that was in
there because I see the message removing it from the queue. I must have
made a mistake on that one.
What do we do now? The author clearly got it in before beta, but we are
in beta now. I think we should apply it.
