That's good news. As you've indicated, the best way to get the changes
reviewed is to break them into small pieces with good regressions tests.
These should be uploaded to our code-review site
for more information). Please make sure the patch descriptions fully
describe the changes being proposed, and take care to follow the
instructions regarding generating full-context diffs and adding the
correct mailing lists as subscribers for each review.
