Hi Maurizio,

I'm currently really too busy to integrate the new git process, other
imperatives coming first.
So, the best I can do is to postpone this wonderful fix ;-) to a
subsequent version (TBD).
But, if you need it impatiently to 16 (or so), feel free to push it at
your convenience and simply list me as a contributor.
