Let's be clear - I'm NOT an authority on the code (or anything
else!). Marco, you must raise this with Jason.

You can't regard changes to a component's behaviour as trivial. One desn't
just "pop in the code" and throw out a new patch. It has to go through the
QA cycle and be rigorously tested to ensure that existing behaviour is not
being overridden.

Just to offer an opinion - if you have significant new features to add to
an existing component, it's often better to inherit a new component rather
than risk breaking people's existing application code. In most cases I've
found Jason's code easy to inherit from and he is amenable to publishing
unpublished properties when someone presents a good case...
