Well, I usually do this interpretation at first but the patches were
posted more than one month ago and during this while you considered,
reviewed and applied several other patches.

Futhermore replying with a short email saying that you're _very_ busy

welcome. And it would have taken less than 1 minute of your time.

Thanks for this clarification, which is a bit scaring, I wasn't aware
of this.
