Lex already mentioned a bunch of reasons I decided to provide the
patchset. But to make it short: It's not my understanding of a good
project releasing unmaintaned code hoping that it will not break
anything. I don't expect heavy development (as some of my plugins also
don't have) but at least some support @mailing lists and from time to
time reviewed documentation and checks whether its working.
