No, we don't. Not if my patches were never a baseline to begin with.

Yes, absolutely, if we have to. My version is an initial functionality
proposal and nothing more. It is Work-In-Progress, and, as such, is
very much a subject to change, or even a complete rewrite - whatever it

No, my patches haven't really been reviewed since they've been a moving
target from the very beginning. IOW, you simply stating that fixing
bugs against code which hasn't been the base line and agreed upon
functionality in the first place, is simply unnecessary churn.
If you want to document the goals you had in mind, just write that as
a comment in the code if it is very important or put it in a commit
IOW, my patches were never ready but RFC. Nothing more.

Again, my patches are simply RFC and a moving target functionality-wise.
If you feel that something was done not in the way it should be done,
then pieces of maybe even them all should be thrown away and done right.
Simply redoing them or asking me to change them is all I'm saying.
