I could get some more time in the next months to finish the rewrite I
have around. I know that we will have a lot of work at job, so I can't

I did the last summer, with the old design it's around so, you can try
to apply the patches to get it working.
I don't know how they work, but you can offer a bounty for this feature.
It would help to get the work done.
