Perhaps reading my message again is in order. I think it is pretty
obvious that the a user shouldn't determine if a patch should be applied.
My whole point was that if people are clamoring for the feature, it
could drive that feature to be more aggressively reviewed.
I can't even count how many times I see:
This seems like a corner case feature, I don't think we should add it.
So I am suggesting a way to insure that the feature is not considered
corner case. (if it is indeed not a corner case)
