I don't know what criteria Arthur is using for the cvsnt stable branch 
at the moment, but for evs as long as a patch doesn't break anything 
putting it into a testing release is no big deal - that's at least in 
part what the testing release is for.

I suggest submitting the patch to cvsnt to Arthur in the first case 
since that's where it'll be most immediately useful.  evs has a number 
of other bottlenecks at the moment so it isn't as easy to see the 
results of speedups (including a significant pause as it enters a 
directory, that I need to track down).
