Wouldn't it make sense to give patches a higher priority?  I mean, if they 
alter the code to fix some problem, you have merging issues there, etc, too.  
People may continue developing against old code etc.  Does it make sense to 
continue working on new features, or even documentation with patches queued 
that could possibly change it all?  No more than it makes sense to leave 
problems unfixed, imho.

Maybe this just needs to be taken a little bit more seriously...  to me, it 
sounds analogous the typical problems of getting documentation done.

Disclaimer: I don't know what I'm talking about here... just asking :D
