Sorry for delaying my report by a day. I felt it worth it, as I was finishing up on what should hopefully my final patch for the GSoC term (subject to review by other developers and subsequent editing of course) and some performance results.

The patch applies to rev. 11807. Please feel free to test it out and report any issues you experience. Just don’t trust important data to it yet.
