Folks, > Moved this patch to next CF 2015-02 because of lack of review(ers). > Do we still need this patch as contrib module? It was originally required it as example of custom-scan interface last summer, however, here was no strong requirement after that, then, it was bumped to v9.6 development cycle.
If somebody still needs it, I'll rebase and adjust the patch towards the latest custom-scan interface. However, I cannot be motivated for the feature nobody wants.
