I would have the time to review and integrate separate patches.  I do
not have time to unwrap the ball of wax and ensure the quality of each
feature and bug fix.  That is the responsibility of the submitter.  You
can't expect reviewers to do your work for you.  I'm not being harsh, it
is simply the reality of how things work in every project I've been
involved with.

Yes, we don't really want that history.  You have a single patch now.  A
series of git rebase -i + git add -i should make it easy to separate it
into patches for each feature and bug fix, as I suggested previously.

It really, really shouldn't be that hard unless the code is atrocious.
