Yeah, i saw this a few days ago too, and it seems to work at another
location, so most probably it would be ok for gnulib, and fix coreutils
and finutils issues with this. I have to look into it.

I don't thinks so. Also at that other location where i put it in, i just
took the concept of how to do it and wrote it on my own, so there should
be no problems, unless somebody patentet this

Yeah, i will fix this issues as soon as i have time.
