The summary is dummy can do what IMQ used to; it is however not related

Yes you can attach a HTB. Look at the posted example in the previous

Not sure i answered your questions.

Again to emphasize: I will send patches only to people interested.

this is my way of monitoring what is being tested. At some point i will
make the latest patches available to everyone.
