My 2 cents,

I may be wrong but to my observation the toughest resistance comes
typically from few veterans who hardly ever wrote a patch, not
developers.  Given the day is 24H people doing development just can't
physically commit all this time arguing for one way or the other for
sustained periods of time.

The result is that often developers just (sadly) fall back on writing
patches as this is perceived to be more useful.
