Thanks for the feedback,

I'll post using git-send-mail later has I'm having some troubles with some perl ssl modules it requires. (I even had read that page but completely forgot about that, sorry about that)

Yeah I resubmitted the patch because I thought it went lost, didn't mean to rush you. I thought you may have preffered having the patch on the mailing list
rather than in the bugtracker.

Thanks for your suggestions, I'll take them into practice in the next patch resubmission using git -send-mail

I was suggested by Allan on the bug tracker to use --no-downgrade, then at the time I was writing it it became --dont-downgrade in my head (lol)
My initial idea was --keep-latest, but in the end I think --no-downgrade would be the better option (rather than --dont-downgrade).But it can for sure be discussed
