OK fair enough, but the two patches I have submitted are:

A simple one line fix for a bug that a friend mentioned to me.  I
believe that this bug is also reported in the RH beta bug tracker.

A much larger patch to add a "fast font" menu to gnome-terminal.  ie.
your favorite fonts are available on the g-t menu with a single click.

(1) is a patch for zvt.  It's a simple bug with a simple fix.  I would
suggest that *anyone* with CVS access is qualified to assess that this
patch is OK and should be applied.  It is very discouraging that it
takes so much effort to get such a simple fix even looked at.  

(2) adds a feature that I have heard requested many times on gnome-list,
and often cited as the only reason for using xterm over g-t.  I've now
had this patch on my system for a month or two and I find it absolutely
indispensible.  I concede that a patch of this size should be looked
over by a "maintainer" before applying.
