Thanks for the offer but I suspect it'll be easier, cheaper, and safer
(for the well-being of your unit) for me to send you build(s) and you
test them. Other than the key mappings, I'm not sure there's much I
would need to do anyway. According to Linus there's no real way to
create an icon, so there's nothing to do there. You could verify the
key mappings very quickly and easily.

Once I release the patch, I'll be happy to send a build to you, if you
like. Let me know.

That sounds like a good idea. I think I'd find that useful also. It
should be pretty easy to do, too. I think it should probably be in a
separate patch from the one I'm working on right now though. When I'm
done with A-B Repeat I'll give this some thought.
