Great work, and many thanks!
One ticket that might be interesting, while you are in the area, is:
The code is attached, I went through all the API review months and
months ago, and everyone agreed that the function should be added, but
under the name "zeroWidthText".
I'm guessing it isn't too much effort to tack this on while you are
working on it? I am currently limited to Hugs only (not enough disk
space to install GHC and no SSH access...), so am unable to patch any
