It also makes us happy that people are willing to contribute patches. :)

You can keep submitting them for sure. While we might not end up applying them (for the reasons outlined before*), patches are always appreciated. It's a good way to get code reviews too.

So again, thanks for the patches.


* Reminder: In this case (Python API changes), we might forgo adding new functionality for stability reasons (not only are we close to shipping out, but 2.49 is supposed to be a stable release). At this point, I know that Campbell unilaterally decided to commit them anyway, but that can be discussed later...
