I for one would be interested.

To make a patch, download the "makepatch" perl script (just google for makepatch, 
you'll find it.) You will need an "original" copy of the code, and your changed 
version. Follow the directions from makepatch, tar up the result and send it. (Adding 
a config option to select the style of line routing would make things easier for 
others who may not want this style.)

Just my $0.02,
