I have only contributed a few patches, and I see that there is argument about whether this
thread should even be about anything other than technical issues, but I figured I would at
least chime in.

I found the submission process to be more difficult than I expected, but I also think the
code turned out better because of it.  I was actually pretty impressed and surprised at the
level of scrutiny and quickness of responses, and it gives me a better feeling about using
the library as a user.  If my patches were outright rejected, though, I might feel differently.
 I don't know the history of Ajo's issue or his code, so I can't comment about it specifically.
