This is what I suggest. Provide a tarball of -head with the patch applied. Provide a couple of use cases that can be run with explanation of how to verify the use cases. Allow the community to drive the inclusion by making it as easy as possible to allow a proactive argument to take place by the people actually using the product. Proving that a user could and would use the feature is something that is a very powerful argument. Sincerely, Joshua D.
