Hi Bernie,

thanks for remembering me. I've just submitted your patch to VLC's  
unstable branch. It can possibly applied to the stable branch as well,  
but we'll have to fix the things Derk-Jan pointed out in June.

Thanks a lot for your re-write. I'm looking forward to see you  
contributing to VLC again once your timetable allows that.

Best regards,
