Personally I do not want to add every feature everyone comes up with,
just because there is a patch.

When is this feature useful?  Can you give an example?  More features
can mean more bugs, more maintainance work, etc.  If the feature is
not worthwhile for more than one person, I am not sure if it should be
included.  Perhaps a better explaination of the problem to solve,
instead of what the patch does might help here.
