no, don't do that.

look at all the patches to and from, back and forth, if you patch it 
yourself, some of your installation will work, others won't.

to to, support, search bug reports, single line, 'swatch', 
include closed reports.
procname depends on the size of your cmd_arg, maybe the os version, 
maybe the arch.
Depending on these, procname needs to be one or the other.
