Unfortunately sending a precise patch is not enough. The patch can
sometimes be complicated (as for emacsclient) and we need time to
minimize that work. (And because of a lot of misunderstanding we have
not been able to move forward there.)

Other times it is the feature itself that has not been thought of as
