Good luck. The changes itself shouldn't be too hard to integrate (just 
look at a diff to the prior version) but I'm not sure what has changed 
in 3.9 itself. And of course getting the load-order to work is a pain. 
This may actually require backporting a few changes from Monticello 
(same repository).
