Well, I wasn't necessary suggesting that I was about to do this myself!

It seems more like work that nearly anyone could do.

Personally I intend to concentrate for the foreseeable future on stuff
related to the 5.18 release, e.g. fixing blocker bugs, reducing smoke
failures etc.

If no-one's done anything with it in the meantime, then I may come back to
it post 5.18.

Please note that ash-trays are provided for the use of smokers,
