I have now created the v0.9.6-maint branch, and synced it up to the
point of the Fedora 0.9.6-6 build.  I applied the 21 patches that have
already been backported to F16, omitting Fedora-specific patches 15
(only affects Fedora) and 23 (a one-liner Fedora specific change instead
of properly backporting upstream spec file changes).  I then backported
several additional patch to get a clean 'make distcheck' run, including
a few patches from the v0.9.11-maint branch (note that I did _not_
cherry-pick every single patch from v0.9.11-maint, since some of those
were patches to issues present in 0.9.11 but not even coded in 0.9.6).

I did not check for any other patches that are worth backporting before
cutting the release; doing that would require reading through
open Fedora F16 bugs to see what people have identified as backporting
candidates.  But at least this should be enough to help Cole get started
on an F16 build.
