That's a bit selfish.  What flaws do these patches address?  Have you
submitted tickets to Trac for them?

I don't know what your level of involvement with the WP Trac system has
been thus far, but there is a lot of activity on it.  Tickets routinely
get attention within a day or so of their submission.  If your changes
are indeed beneficial, feature-complete, etc., there's a good chance
that they will be incorporated.

To withhold your actual code and attempt to force action by
"threatening" a fork is pretty arrogant and against the principles of
Open Source development, IMNSHO.
