Another major flaw on its own is the sheer size of the patch (it hadn't
been explicitly mentioned to my knowledge). Aren't we supposed to
commit early and often in open source projects instead of dumping all
your changes on reviewers at once (first fork and later merge)? And if
you're still going to do it, a the huge patch should only be necessary
to establish a single sweeping change, not many small changes.
