Mhm, then I misunderstood. You just missed your whole patch for
what you really need (in fact that is what I was afraid of).

Please provide all what you should put to require mcs hackers
to review the patches. It is not a good idea to put patches step
by step, without obvious purpose. If it is being reverted later
when the purpose turned out that we should not have in mcs
codebase, it will be just waste of time.

If you are going to create another tool, then you should keep
your changes on those mcs sources in your local mcs copy, so that
other mcs hackers don't have to be bothered about whatever they
never use.
