I don't think you could; this community is much more accepting than
other software communities around the web. The fact that I received
constructive feedback rather than a lecture when formatting issues
slipped my mind (i.e. forgetting [PATCH v2]) is reason enough to stick

I agree with trying to push a few uncontroversial changes through. I'd
love to take a deeper look at these helper functions and related
cleanups…perhaps it would be worth it to identify a few key areas to
work on in addition to a main GSoC project? In fact, the project I'm
looking to take on (rebase --interactive) also involves code cleanup
and might not take all summer, so I could see how those could work
well together in a proposal.
I'll be re-reading this thread and working on this patch over the
weekend to try to identify the more straightforward hunks I could
submit in a patch.
Thanks Peff and everyone else for your help.
