a git repo is in no way a release.
the copyright entitles someone to copy the file without adhering to the
everybody can copy it.
with a 20 lines patch i dont see myself gaining any copyrights on this
code. and if fons wanted to sell stuff containing my patch he might well
do so. i dont care.

i pushed up a git repo.

after his statement that there wont be session support i didnt think
this was useful.

anyways. switched git master to fonss original code.
so someone unable to use git wont get my code.

i am assuming that somebody who knows how to use git,
is able to look who did the patches.
