This is not always the case. Sometimes patches are submitted as "I am
proposing this change for consideration - what do people think about
it?". In fact, it could be argued that *all* patches are submitted under
that category, to one degree or another; certainly any "I will apply
this in N days if no one objects" patches would seem to fit it.

Agreed on all three points. There is a bad grammar issue in the third
hunk (beginning a sentence with "And" is almost never a good idea), but
the patch as it stands doesn't even try to change that.

side of it.
