No, it just wasn't in the 0.83's status page, so I thought that since 
you were very busy it might have slipped your mind to add it. It 'is / 
will be' one of the justifications for the packages addition to our 
builds replacing hopefully b~, and i suspect as it also allows removal 
of another external package, that a number of others will look at it in 
a similar vein.

Oh, and do you mean you want me to review what you have done towards this?
