No offense meant. I wouldn't have sent that "ping" after less than one
week if 5.1.1 wouldn't be said to be that close.

But indeed, you guys do an impressive job on replying promptly to
nearly every issue! So people might start to wonder if a mail has been
overseen or lost in some inbox if there's no reply at all. :-)

(2) looks fine on a first glance:

echo ${PASTED#$KEYS}

Maybe we should wait with 5.1.1 a few more days...
