Very nice, thank you!

I reviewed all five patches, and offered a couple of suggestion.

As is tradition on this list, I also offered way more comments that do not
require any action from you, please use discretion when reading those: I
definitely do not expect you to do anything about those "for the future"

This patch series is in a very good shape, methinks, and should not need a
whole lot more work to enter `next`. From that point on, a GSoC student
working on the `stash` project (if we get any) could take over.

Thank you so much!
