I wish package maintainers at the various distros wouldn't glamorize 
patches as they seem to do.  They should be involved in the upstream 
project development and seek to integrate as many patches as possible so 
that the only patches they apply are truly distribution-specific.  Most 
customization patches can still be upstreamed and enabled with 
build-time flags.

Thanks,

Lee.
