It has only been a week.  I looked over them briefly at the day they
arrived, but they were all low priority so I postponed to process them
as a batch.  It's good to know that you are done with this batch and
are stalled waiting for an answer, so here it is ;)

Silence is not rejection.  In particular, Werner said that we may
follow your suggestion, but as it would be an ABI break, this requires
more changes beyond the ones you sent in, and needs to be coordinated
with the release schedule.  In particular, these two patches I want to
defer to Moritz.

I put in those two now.
