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.
