Well, I'm not entirely sure how to respond to this.  I certainly never
suggested that it be committed to stable without a patch for feature.  I
also can't fully agree that it's purely an enhancement, in that in our
environment it runs so slowly that if we can't improve the performance
soon, we'll be forced to switch to some other tool, which I really don't
want to do. 

I've gone to a fair amount of effort to follow the requirements for
changes, but at this point, before I spend more time on this I need to
fully understand *exactly* what is required to get these changes
committed. Particularly what is meant by the phrase "thoroughly tested
on feature".
