I have no problems with adding that.  To save me a few minutes, would you
like to open a patch tracker on sf and put a diff there?  (Against whatever
version you have is fine).

No, unfortunately.  This is (as you'd know):

[ 940643 ] Add ham_folder option

And it didn't make it into 1.0 (the 1.0 branch has been pretty much 'frozen'
for a long time, to try and get the release as stable as possible).

However, this has now been implemented and checked into CVS.  That means
that it will be in the 1.1a1 release, whenever that is (but not in 1.0.1,
which is bugfixes only).  It's in CVS now, if you wanted to use that
instead, but there's probably not much point since you've got a modified
copy already.
