Unless what he's implemented is bad why not just comit anyway until you  
get around to doing it better/diffeently?
It would be one less task on your busy schedule and one more lose end  
tidied up for 2.4

Well it's true it does not seem to do much so it may be best no to build  
it if it's been pushed to a future release. Still committing the name  
change would not be a bad move since David has coded it.

You've said you were very frustrated about not getting 2.4 out yet. May I  
gently make the point that if you could be a little more flexible in  
accepting others contributions even if not _exactly_ the way you would  
chose for it to be done you would get more contributions and contributers.

Maybe you dont realise how frustrating and demoralising it is to put in  
time to come up with improvements, code and submit patchs only to see them  
bounced.

It really leaves one with the feeling "why did I bother?".

Clearly you're not going to accept everything anyone comes up with but  
everyone needs to find thier motivation for contributing to OSS. I think  
this often means fixing an personal annoyance or adding a feature we'd  
like to see. Getting things refused without a what seems to be a firm  
reason is disheartening and removes the motivation to make further  
contributions.

Please don't take that the wrong way , it's just something you may like to  
consider that could help the project gain momentum.
