Thanks Mads,

Next time I make a patch I will definitely follow the guidelines you've
pointed out to me.  I guess I was informally offering up that bit of
code (Bug.remove).  I don't mind if it's not used.  :-)

Thanks also for the tip re: file permissions and diff.  I'll keep an eye
out for that.  :-)

I did notice the disciplined approach to documentation in the patch
