I'll advocate for folks looking at these patches where I can, but I wanted
to give you a bit of a heads up -- many of the regular contributors (and
reviewers) who would be qualified to review this patch are on vacation for
the holidays and may be very slow to respond.

Anyways, hopefully someone can look through them, I just didn't want you to
misunderstand any subsequent delays. The next two weeks tend to be the
slowest for reviews on the project.
