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.
