What do you mean by that, exactly?  As long as your "don't help
much" is "would not hurt and will help some even for a small subset
of audience", that would be OK, but I am puzzled.

My reading of your responses to bug reports and the cover letter of
the series has been that these were real fixes to a real problem
without downsides, and that you consider that they are good changes
to have in the upcoming release.

I am hoping that you did not mean that we shouldn't merge it to the
'next' and 'master' branches, but if that is what you meant, can we
hear what the downsides of the series are?
Are they more churn than they are worth without solving the real
issue?  Do they regress for some repositories/workflows while
improving for others?  I didn't get such an impression.

Correct.  Following the coding style of the project is not the
matter for your liking or not liking.  It is part of being on the
same codebase with other participant of this project.
