Sorry for the delay - I have now added your patch. I somehow thought that I already had. My excuse is that I have been out of the office almost constantly the last three weeks so it's a bit hard to keep up.

I am very happy for the contributions on Mac - I do not have a Mac myself and we don't have enough resources to maintain more than we do already. However, I am very interested in patches and normally my round trip time is somewhat shorter than the recent weeks. In other words - the Mac port is up to you to help getting running ;-) Jeff has been more than patient - thanks!
