Austin and I did the investigations and wrote the initial version.  We 
discussed it with Dietmar, who suggested some significant rewrites which 
we felt added to the readability of the code.  The current version 
posted on the list you've seen was basically written by all three of us, 
so I listed the authors in alphabetical order to properly give credit to 
all involved.

Is there a better way to handle patches which have authorship from 
multiple people?
