So... Speaking of noobs... What does one do with a .patch file? I'm
guessing there's some tool for merging its contents w/the source it's
intended to modify, yes? What are the mechanics for doing this (on
windows)? Or should we not be doing this ourselves?

I've asked Tobias if I could forward this message. I think there
is a big opportunity for us as we reach out to other developers
to help move our RPS projects along. Tobias should be joining
this list shortly (maybe he's already here -- Hiya Tobias!), and
is interested in helping us build on Payment.

Here is the patch,
It comes with full unit test coverage for the moneris parts. I'll help out
with this library once it gets of its feet again since I need support for
various providers myself for the next project.
