For the record: my reason for suggesting to Martin to send patches is
that sending a (trivial) patch often turns out to be a quick way to get
issues like that resolved. Maintainers seem to react quite quickly on
patches. Perhaps even faster if a patch is not solving the issue at hand
entirely correct! Messages like Martin's, that basically state that
there are one or more tree-wide problems, seem to be overlooked easily.
