Thank you for the patches.

Currently our "master" branch works on both XS5.5 and the XS5.7
alpha releases.  Some of these patches would break the 5.5
release.  We want to continue testing master against 5.5 for the
moment, though (I'm not sure that we even have a new enough spin
of 5.7 that would work with these patches), so I don't want to
push them to master as-is.

So here's what I did:

        - Patches 1 and 3 would break 5.5, so I pushed them to a
          new branch "xs5.7".
