Hi Mark,

Yes everything is Oracle internal now. So there may be a delay - sorry. 
The main thing that stops this being trivial is the need to validate the 
changes against DTrace on Solaris. I'm not even sure which tests need to 
be used. I'll try to connect with Keith to see if we can move this forward.

Thanks for your patience.
