I'm afraid you'll have to do that. There's no way I can put that patch
in as is, it's way too big and doing way too many different things. It
also has a number of ugly hacks that will have to be cleaned up.
Please submit small self-contained patches that do only one thing,
with a changelog explaining what they do.

I know it's a pain, but the real solution for next time is to submit
things as soon as they are done, instead of waiting a month and then
sending a huge patch that cannot possibly be reviewed.
