Just a thought: This is not the only time, where a hack is used to fix a
specific problem/application that is unacceptable for inclusion into the
source tree. How about adding a hacks/ directory where patches like this
one can be collected and (more or less) maintained? The maintainance would 
be the responsibiblity of those who use the patch.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
