Just my opinion regarding this point:

What you didn't quote is why Jean-Marc encouraged you to submit a patch,
and I share his opinion. Your allegation that he (or anybody else)
wouldn't care is rather steep: maybe those who suggest submitting a
patch have just as much time for open source software as you do. If you
find those dialogs "rather annoying" (and it looks like you're the only
one), then your can either live with that or get involved. Blaming
somebody else is not helping your case.
