We should put something there that points to this one of these pages,
and leave it at that:

We have never encouraged throwing patches at us without discussion and I
would be against starting now. If I were to respond there, it would be
to reject the pull request and post one of those links as the reason.
However some people might not agree with such a blunt approach, so I'm
not going to do anything.

I only responded to this thread to point out that the patch is clearly
wrong, or at least most of it is. Which isn't surprising, given that it
was created without any discussion and apparently with very little
attempt at understanding.
