It wasn't really my intention to send it in - it was in the tarball I sent
to Linus out of habit because I've been doing it every time I've released
one for some time - I'm amazed that he actually took it.
But now it's in, it does seem to have attracted some attention, and with it
at least one bug fix so far - which can only really be a good thing.
It's marked with CONfIG_EXPERIMENTAL, and as soon as I submit the Documentation
patch which I've always promised "after the code gets merged" it'll be even
more clearly documented as such.
I'm of the opinion that it might as well stay there now that it's in -
although it's really up to Axis to decide as it's their baby.
