I submitted my patch against a 3.16.0 prerelease. It should apply
almost out of the box. As for maintaining it, I would be more than
happy to maintain that portion of Spread code if it were adopted into
the main tree. However, I am no fan of ice skating up hill.
Jonathan has my patch and it should take very little effort to apply it
in its current form. I guess this decision is directly in the lap of
Jonathan and perhaps Yair.
I tested the patch and everything on Solaris (2.5-8), Linux, FreeBSD,
(all on both little and big endian systems). I made efforts to maintain
the Window portion in an "untouched" form -- so, it should still work
too. Also, the install is nice and respects alternate locations without
