IMHO this is an obsolete way of doing things, and the whole "feature
request without a patch" was a not-so-helpful approach.

I don't believe there's been any tickets closed as feature request
without a patch for a while now... Most devs agree it's not the way to

On the other hand, you don't want to clutter trac too much.

In your case, I would just open a ticket, submit what you have ; or better.
open a ticket, clone the git repository and provide pull request instead.

It's much easier to review and apply back to the main tree.
