First, I forgot your name and didn't have time to look it up. It's not
like I called you "the idiot" or something.
Second, I asked on more than one occasion to submit as a single patch
that added that one feature. Everything you sent in a revision of your
patch it included things outside the scope of your feature. I didn't
crap on it, I think it's a good idea. The only thing I asked was for
you to make your patches more focused, just like everyone else gets
asked to do.
