I'm not gonna magically pull your set of patches.
I will review patches if they are sent on this list with explanation of
what they are doing. And before rolling dozen of those get feedback on
the first ones.

I originally planned to format a patch with git from my first commit to
last when I get something finished and file it to Bugzilla (or should I
file it here to the list?), with proper explanation.

Actually I'm going to scrap the branch and start anew, without moving
the functions around.

 What do you want to achieve ? I think I understand but it is better if
stated. Then we can see how to get there with minimal disruption and
a clear set of patch each doing one step. Probably don't need to scrap
everything, but reorganize in an easy to follow/review set.
 The key point is the absolute imperative of keeping API and ABI
stability. I would also prefer to not add too many new entry points
for both human and technical reasons (first because the API is confusingly
too big already, and second because the resolution of all entry points in
ELF shared library may turn quadratic and we are already quite big)

Beside that I will hadly say no to anything improving documentation :-)

  thanks !
