The patch looks great! It is unfortunately a few days late to make
it into R13B. Now the source tree is labeled, and cut in stone.
We have applied it, and it will be in the first patch release.

We will also release it as a source code patch immediately
after the R13B release.

More patches like that! (and earlier)-:
