Surely you see the difference between "That's an interesting idea; can
you generate some patches so we can take a look and see how it works
out?" and "WhereTF is your patch to do this?".

One provides an opportunity for users to contribute, and the other is a
snarling, rude dismissal that really doesn't do very much to encourage
people to stick around and help out.
