Yes, of course. So I'll just add my fields to that struct if I need any
new ones, and you'll rename it later, is that the plan?

Of course, if you beat me to it with updating it, I'll just move along

I only started looking at this a couple of hours ago... 

Is this supposed to be complete, or are there more patches coming?
