OK, I'll commit the simple backslashectomy then.

The patch file support I have been working on is not finished, and I
don't think it will be for a near-term release. I don't want to rush on
that one as it asks for some not trivial modifications in vcview & vc

If you want to try it, I'll rediff the patch posted in bug 572565, as it
should not apply cleanly now, and update that bug report.

Don't be afraid this one is high on my todo list, partly because I'm
really annoyed by kompare bugs, which make me want to ditch it
in favor of meld for patch viewing... ;-)

I think the other plugins could go in before a release, because there
should be no regression for something we didn't previously support.

OK, a bad interaction with multiple-VC could probably cause a
regression somewhere. So I'll let you decide, but if you want them,
I'll need to port them to current meld code base, as they are
dependent upon other modifications I still have not committed.

Maybe it'll be better if we release early without further new functionality,
only fix the last bugs we want in, and then go wild after that...

Perfect with me, do you need some specific help for the release ?

So I'll commit the batch of patches already sent for review, and wait
after the release for the next ones. OK with that ?
