Well, there you have it.  The ones that do any kind of relevant change
are the ones that need thinking about and consideration.  And when you
are so verbose about them that

a) you are getting on people's nerves
b) nobody else finds something worth saying that you did not already say

then the net effect is that it feels to the person in question he's
mainly doing you (and not all that many others) a favor by investing the
work for properly considering it and its consequences.

Which is not much of an incentive.  At any rate, we are in a phase
supposed to be shortly before the release of 2.0.  So it is actually
quite by design that patches doing any kind of relevant changes are not
currently going through.  You can be as nice or ugly about it as you
want right now and it will not affect 2.0 any more.

But it might do so regarding 2.1.
