In patch format.. Oh please.. I have no idea how to produce that! I 
installed xxdiff, it perfectly shows what I've changed but I don't see 
an option to save it to a patch file!

You're lucky I've got a satellite dish so I should also be able to patch 
szap and femon. I'll also produce a patched version of czap but my cable 
card is not installed ATM and I don't feel like doing so (cable provider 
is crap) but I'll probably get someone else on this list to test it.

Please do not try to add the switch yourself without asking me if I'm 
still working on it. Nobody needs double work.

If somebody can tell me how to produce the so much wanted .diff files 
I'll start working on it.
