Come on.  There's no relationship between quality of the patch and when 
it's picked up by a commiter.  I ran my patch through tinderbox until 
was right, and it's not like that made a difference.  There is no way to 
tell the quality without taking a real look.

There's plenty wrong with the current system.  The real question is 
what's the most practical way to address it.
