we should definitely work together.
what is the status of your patch?
maybe we can discuss this off list?
The last time I worked on it was on 8.0 (I think), but it wouldn't take much to get it up to speed on 8.2. It's actually very similar to yours so it would probably be just as easy to start off with your patch. I'm open to whatever but I'm really busy so I can only devote some time to it if it's likely to be accepted.
