I'm also in favor of doing option 1 until option 2 is possible.

I had an existing email thread with the upstream maintainer going. To work
towards option (2) I've bumped that thread with him just now, identifying
the PRs below and asking him to review+feedback or review+merge.


If there are additional things besides these PRs please identify them also.
