That depends on your definition of "proper". If you mean "a patch
including test cases", then you are correct. However, as I mentioned
in my last message, a patch *was* submitted by Philippe Payant on 13
Dec, 2000.

It isn't that there haven't been enough complaints (there's been
plenty (no, I don't mean from the same people!) - I've saved them and
can send you a digest if you want ;-), it's that the active developers
cannot be convinced.

I'm just hoping that since it's a newer project, less entrenched in
its ways, and they're actively trying to capture new users, that they
will be more open to suggestions in general, and since this is a
common request (not only because it is useful, but because people are
used to having it on other source control systems), it seems likely
that they'll be at least receptive enough to listen.
