We went over the old mails, of course. But either it's part of another
old-mail-folder I've still not send to Denis for checking or I totally lost
this. But that should be no problem. The WML 1.6.8 version was to sync us all
with the lastest changed which I've already done. Now that we're in sync,
please (re-)post all your patches so Denis can look at it and consider it for
inclusion into WML 1.7.0.
