Hello Richard.  

I do have a couple of patches that I haven't applied, due to not being
able to test them.  One fixes alignment issues for OSF1, and the other
provides a fixed-point implementation for MONEY types.  

I've asked if someone else wants to take over maintainership of the module
before, but with no responses.  Where did you see the comments about
unapplied patches? unfortunately they were not forwarded to me.  There are
fewer than ten people who have told me they are using the module.  There
may be more lurkers.  I honestly don't know who's using it.

Until I hear that someone else will maintain, I'll try to at least make
available the patches I get, even if I can't test them.
