Well, it's quite a few patches, between cleanups, fixes and new features.
And I plan to do more, so the idea of getting an account and a
maintainership (at least at the "Odd Fixes" level) probably isn't that bad.

However, I *am* quite the newbie when it comes to X driver programming, so
the idea of submitting the patches for review before pushing them upstream
is a good idea anyway, even if I'm the one doing the final commits in the
end. I'm now trying to get the grasps of git and its email facilities, so
expect patch submissions soon :)

Done, see other mail :)
