if the patch isn't in text format, you're going to see a large
resistance to using it from most open source developers. mailing off a
patch to a mailing list works well because one can just glance at it
and see what it's doing. if your proposed solution is something opaque
(or even just cryptic text like the old xml stuff we had back in the
day), it seems like a showstopper to me.
