Could you restart the new thread?  It's been hanging too deeply and
hard to read through.

Since it's the revised patch, please give the revision number (v2 or
such) and show what's different from the previous patches.

About the changes:

How to set the flag is an open question.  A natural way would be to
set it somehow at creating the component object, but currently there
seems no way to pass any flags.
