Uhh.. I think the reason it's so small, is that the doc and that stuff 
isn't there.  I know I got that one off cambot, and it worked fine.  Did

The one for p11 is the newest one.  It's a great exercise for any coder 
to add the code in that patch by hand.  I've done it many, many times.  
It takes time, but it's pretty easy.  I see a lot of complaints here that 
the patches doesn't go easily into their code(not specifically you, Mike),
well, duh.
