    Most likely, that's simply because no pmdevil has stepped up to implement it. That said, it would still need to be blessed by one of the gods, who are probably waiting for a pmdev to implement it, but no pmdev has enough of an itch from this to try it without having, basically, pre-approval from a god that it'll get applied. (Yes, there's a bit of a circle here.)

      Tanktalus, I don't know whether to praise you for being able to explain the situation so eloquently, or shame you for failing to notice that there is already an unapplied patch, resulting from 720039.

      Maybe both? :-)

      Between the mind which plans and the hands which build, there must be a mediator... and this mediator must be the heart.

        getopt/3/linux didn't work (all but "getopt" was ignored, but there may not be a generic "linux" OS selection) and neither did getopt/3/Plan 9 ("Plan 9" appeared in the OS list). And URL encoding of the link description is not ideal.

        Thanks for writing the patch.

        - tye
