If the patch is not specifically identified as "not a contribution"  
then what do you propose as a mechanism to associate a patch with a  
"conspicuously marked" comment "Not a Contribution"?

I think it's pretty good right now that you can tell immediately that  
a patch is or is not a contribution without having to look through the  
comments and try to figure out from the comments which patches are  
intended to be contributions and which are not.
