He surely does, and it's helping us to focus on the product as a whole.

Not sure about that in all cases. He pushes things upstream regularly, 
when they are sufficiently tested.

In the long run there should be no reason to have significant changes in 
the ports.

Whatever... back to the UDPTunnel patch. It brought an aspect of 
settings handling to my attention which can be called "unintentional". 
Need to make changes independently of the patch to rectify this. This 
will delay integration a bit - and I promise there will be enough code 
cleanup that the author may have trouble recognizing some of his code :)

So overall - better wait until it shows up in svn, otherwise you'll have 
to manually fix VM config files.
