I'm rather stuck in Mammoth Replicator currently :-( so I'm not sure
when I could devote some time to this task.  If you want to do it, go
ahead and I can adapt the relminxid patch to your changes.  Or you can
take the relminxid patch from where it currently is, if you feel so

If you don't, I'll eventually come back to it, but I'm not sure when
will that be.
