Um, if you mean are we going to promise to accept a patch in advance of
seeing it, the answer is certainly not.  Still, a SoC author can improve
his chances in all the usual ways, primarily by getting discussion and
rough consensus on a spec and then on an implementation sketch before
he starts to do much code.  Lots of showstopper problems can be caught
at that stage.

I think the main problems with the FD patch were (1) much of the
community was never actually sold on it being a useful feature,
and (2) the implementation was not something anyone wanted to accept
into core, because of its klugy API.  Both of these points could have
been dealt with before a line of code had been written, but they were
not :-(
