In this particular case, my attitude is that since you have commit access, the 
responsibility is upon you to produce patches that fix the problem and 
shepherd them through the release process.  Please don't expect anyone else to 
fix your problems.

I've suggested what approach I think you should take and I pointed out places 
where your original patch was incorrect/inefficient, but you haven't come back 
with a patch that implements it.  That should have been the next step in the 
process.  After the patch gets some positive feedback on the list, you could 
then have committed it to 2.1.  Then, you could have proposed it to be 
backported to 2.0.

And, as Sander has pointed out, this isn't a regression from prior releases. 
Therefore, we won't necessarily hold up a release for it.  -- justin
