My problem isn't so much with the patch, it worked fine last time I
had a working DE.  Although it probably should be broken into a few
commits to separate some of the "preparatory" changes from the actual
SM stuff. My concern is rather with the maintenance issues if it is in
git master.  Unfortunately I expect lots of "I turned it on for <some
DE> and it didn't work but <firefox, gedit, etc> does, fix it waaa
waaa waaa" if we did that.

Yes agree that the patch tracker isn't ideal, it probably should be a
git branch that Dimitar can maintain and then it is more visible
without increasing his workload.

I thought the Git branch was Eugenes and he already said it could be removed??

If my memory is right, then removing it and applying the patch to a
"new_sm" branch would be the way to go.

Its SF, you have to stand on one leg, spin around three times while
the wind is in the southwest and sprinkle pixie dust, easy :)
