Well, if it does not cause any regressions and bad performance,
it is OK. There is no reason to reject such a patch. Anyone *who
thinks it matters* should (feel free to) spend his/her/its own
resources i.e. time to create a fix, or pay someone to fix it.
I don't think it is not worthy of spending Novell's resources.
We are not playing a game, nor spending resources on someone's
hobby, but doing businesses.
