For the *next* time you post the patch. I'd hate to see the patch submission
process become so subject to rules and restrictions and other requirements
that people get fed up and just go away. Suggestions to people on how to
submit future patches "for the greater good" is a good thing, but (IMO) we
should be careful about how hard we set the bar for (casual) patch
contributors. If a person *is* a casual contributor, then onerous
requirements will just send them away.

The existing patch can still be reviewed, and should be. (will try soon)
