That is great news! I have always avoided running patches like this on
anything that I expect to be maintaining over a long period of time, since
you can't know for sure whether new patches will be developed going
forward. Having this very useful feature become part of the base really
helps me and anyone else doing VPS-type stuff.

I did find the vimage work eventually, but it's more than I need and I was
not too certain about how stable it is at this point.

Thanks,

Charles
