Gonna be taking a look at it myself thanks.  For the record another,
possibly better, way of submitting patches is to create an issue in Mantis
on the website and attach the patch there.  That will allow it to be
assigned to someone with write access to SVN to get it committed at some
point(Assuming they don't have a problem with it).  But for the moment this
will work, thanks for the effort, and I will take a look at it as soon as I
get a moment for my own curiosity.
