Hi Jeremy,

I think you're right and your request is more specific. However, since
you're also committed to create a patch for the issue, there's
actually no need to create one in the database yet. [And there won't
be at all, if you're prepared to see the submission process through.]

So, what you could do now is research what needs adjusting and where.
Write that down in a proposal for change. Then, when you explained all
aspects to the change (and nobody objects too much), you can start

Likely, the patch will see a number of revisions where we will ask you
to adjust specific aspects of the patch. This may be anything from
coding style to implementation details.
