For the record, and from memory, there were three patches.

One from you which broke my tree.

One from Randy which I merged after several days of you not responding
to our bug reports.

One which I typed in by hand based upon your lackadaisical,
several-month-late English-language description of what I needed to do
to fix it.  As we can see, it didn't work.

I wish Jeff hadn't merged the thing after I dropped it - I sat on it
for months waiting in exhasperation for you to actually support your
own work and you never did.

Can we just revert it now?
