Sounds like a wiki page would do nicely.  When I change a part of  
core, I submit a patch.  The hard part is if Miller doesn't accept  
the bugfix.  Even harder is if is accepts the patch, but not all of it.

Basically, my plan for this going forward is to not touch any of the  
internal objectclasses.  It's just too much work.  It's less work to  
write and maintain a new one.

Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war  
on terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom
