AFAIK, no one is working on this, so it would be great to have it added.

you should be using, if possible, CVS for developement. If not possible,
0.19 is the last one

it's better to do it on free software, whatever that is (linux, bsd,

the best thing is to send us cvs diff (cvs diff -u). If you can't use
CVS, a diff against the latest release, or, even better, latest snapshot
might be enough.
