Patch applied.

Please can you make sure that the ChangeLog entries correspond to all the changes made in your patches in future. I've updated the entry this time, but it only contained a reference to some of the files which had changed, and the comment "add Brass backend".

Detailed ChangeLog entries are important both to make it easier to find the source of problems in future. The process of writing them is also a good way to review the changes made in a patch, to ensure nothing has been inadvertently included which wasn't meant to be. Olly and I use a "svn-ci" script (available in xapian-maintainer-tools) which populates the ChangeLog file with a new entry listing all the files which have changed, and follows that with the diffs contained in the file. You might find it helpful to use this - I'm sure it could be made to work on windows without too much difficulty.

Understood: as I didn't know that script existed I've been forced to update the ChangeLog by hand up to know, which is prone to error.
