Since the maintainer hasn't moved on this since then, and since
you seem to have already done all of this, would you mind 
submitting what you've got, or at least attach some patches I 
can apply to what's currently in the repo?  Perhaps I should just
go to bed now, but I'm having a bit of trouble wrapping my head
around exactly what I need to do to fix all of this... :/
