The Patches page in the Wiki mentions a 'Root attribute' patch and has a forum link. Unfortunately the forums are no-longer there and I've had no luck finding it anywhere else.
I've tried to replicate this functionality myself but I'm a PHP developer, not C++ and have had little success.
If this patch is still available somewhere, could someone point me towards it? Or if this is a feature that more people would use could it be merged into the trunk code?
