I just don't see how I could do that in 2 patches.
In V8 series the first user was appearing in patch 22 out of 28.
Last two days I spent solely hacking the series to move it sooner.
Today the first user is still in patch 15.
Will try to shorten them even more.
So blame it on my skills and not my attitude.

Understood. Will try to make patches shorter and hopefully
more pleasant. I think 'being persistent' is mandatory here :)
