No one noticed them, no one thought they were any good, or everyone 
was just too busy and forgot about them.  If you don't get any 
response to a patch, send it again about a week later.

"I don't have commit access, and I wasn't able or didn't bother to 
convince anyone else with commit access that it was a good idea."

"the right answer" can be very subjective.  You're doing the same 
thing you're accusing Greg of doing: you're stuck on the fact that 
your way is the only right way.

Absolutely.  They're the people with commit access.  You make it 
sound like this is a bad thing.
