If you have a patch, you should commit it to our copy. Make sure you
activate the test case, so that somebody incorporating the next Expat
release doesn't mistakenly roll back your change.

Of course, you might wait a few days to see whether Fred creates another
release that we could incorporate without introducing new features.
