I'm sorry you feel this way.  However, after reading the entire
discussion, I see nothing but a reasonable process.  Let me explain.

Your original submission first got a general comment from Stefan
suggesting a different approach.  When you reworked the patch
according to Stefan's suggestions, you got one comment from Andreas
(with whom you exchanged a couple of messages regarding his comment),
and several specific comments from Stefan.  It is entirely reasonable
that two different people comment on different portions of the patch.
Sorry, but I see no "hunk by hunk" here.
