What you are saying is that we should maintain a fork for you... I
doubt thats going to happen. You can easily maintain your own patch
set yourself however. Its been done before. Not a complete fork but a
patch set distributed separately. GIMP Painter was such a patch set.
So far some of it has been integrated to mainstream, some of it is
still separate.
