It's the same reason we let patches to the http server fall into the black hole.  When we
get a patch from someone we do not know (and trust) and the patch is not scratching an
active developer itch, it generally gets ignored (unfortunate but true). Sascha has earned
some level of trust with the libtool dev team. It would be really good if someone from our
team spent some time earning the trust of the libtool dev team, and perhaps being invited
in as a committer :-)
