This isn't the standard that we've used in the past. In the past patches that
are mostly done and need some extra work done to polish them off are
considered to have met the feature freeze. 

In any case I think Simon and you have fallen into the trap of thinking of
development as a single-person project. Most developers here, especially
first-time contributors, don't just work in the dark on their own and turn up
with a finished patch. They have questions and need help in areas. If you
insist on a "finished" patch before you even consider reviewing their work
it's not going to work.
