I'll second that. People should submit patches, yes, but too often
"Just do it on Trac" is the response, and it avoids valid discussion
of how to *best* approach a problem.
I'm not even talking about Michael's specific problem here (though the
discussion has taught me some things). There was a Trac ticket the
other day where somebody tossed up a patch. There was a very little
bit of discussion. I pointed out a problem with the patch, **the
person who coded it agreed with me**, and the next response was the
(faulty) patch being committed to Core! Huh??? As Michael says, very
"binary" and very little discussion.
