Alright, cool.. Just a few questions before I get started:

* I will maintain style(9), but as has been stated previously, this is
concerning style.. do I have to maintain **argv or *argv[]? do I have to
the newline when no function-specific variables are declared within the
after the starting accolade? do I have to remove globals where I can? do I
have to
put all the #define's on top, or in the code (where they sometimes are right
* Do I have to send my patches to submit@ or directly to eirik, without
the rest?
* Do I also have to submit style changes for contrib/ and stuff? Or just the

also committed to contrib/)

If you'll answer these questions, expect a lot of patches :-)
