I've never submitted a patch before.  I suppose I'll have to fiddle with 
downloading the whole thing through TortoiseSVN and then apply my 
changes into three different patches.

Can't do this at the moment.  Busy with other things.

If you can find (or perhaps someone could make?) a video tutorial that 
demonstrates how to use Sourceforge for making and submitting patches, 
that would be great.  I ran a _quick_ Google search and came up pretty 
much empty-handed on a decent tutorial (both video and plain text).  A 
more in-depth search might turn up something.
