OK.  It is SVN.  It doesn't have to be perfect.  I would really like to see you 
commit what you think is right and we can then work from that to narrow down any 
outstanding issues.  The ticket doesn't have to be closed right away, but from 
what I can tell, what you have now covers 99% + of users.   Lets get that in and 
then work on the remaining 1%.
