On rereading my comments, I apologise - you're absolutely right that I
didn't have enough evidence to judge that you "don't care enough"
about the patch.

Thanks for clarifying - I entirely agree with you that just being
willing to put together any sort of bug report or patch is valuable,
and people should not be discouraged from doing so. (It's a sad but
probably inevitable fact that many such contributors - I include
myself here! - have expectations of speed of response which simply
aren't possible for a volunteer project, and as a result get
frustrated with "the process", but that's a separate issue)
