If it's so easy to rework these patches then please do so yourself.
It's been ages since I've worked on this so I would also have to
re-discover everything.

And yes it's ugly, but so is the code that you've merged in.
Which you haven't changed a single line in after merging. So it's still
the version from Avery which hasn't been maintained for the last two years.

This ball of wax is still a big improvement in my opinion.

Feel free to scrape the github forks for improvements on your own,
cleanup the code style and create fitting test cases.
But if you intend on taking in changes only when presented to you on a
silver patter, then we're better of with subtree removed from the
contrib tree.

What would a random user have to do to get a patch in? I've found a
number of subtree related mails on the git-user list go completely
Amongst them a patch from James Nylen wich seems very reasonable.
