That was a preliminary update that i did.. In the tarball i had all the 
whitespace cleanups.. I intend to do the cleanup soon just after a 
preliminary trial run...

That's right i have not yet imported the orxxxx changes.., if you feel 
comfortable then go ahead, you can make the experimental branch changes 
in sync with the MAIN as well as your patch.

I hope that nothing breaks, as *there are many unknowns in the dst 
driver even to the manufacturer*. I mean even to the hardware designers.

Well if you feel that it should be done immediately go ahead, i am not 
stopping you.
