The version that will ship with 1.1 is 1.34, 

and the changelog looks like Samuel hasn't been working on that code for 
over a year.

How about someone picking up stuff on the buglist and submit patches? I 
honestly didn't look, but rewrite or fork are not the answer here. If 
you have problems with landing existing patches, mail drivers at m.o.
