Tim's changes arrived as part of one of SMA's packages back in November. Unfortunately, Tim's changes collided with those by Ian and Marcus that were needed by jitter3 and were set aside until they could be resolved. I don't know if Tim was informed of this nor whether any further action was taken. Perhaps if Tim or someone else could reconcile the differences, this matter could be wrapped up.
