why bother?  i don't believe there's anyone on this list who's likely to
take any action on your suggestion.  (i might have been moved to do so
if i knew enough about biblatex to be sure i wasn't misclassifying
things, but i've only read bits of the doc, never used it.)

you might get further by urging philipp to provide such a file at his
next upload...

but then, the next upload may be the fabled 0.9, and may come in
parallel with a working biber, and the whole ballgame will have changed.
