I think the important thing here is that *someone* takes the patches.
We've now got Ted and Borislav both saying they're OK applying the
patches, an additional proposal that Andrew takes the patches, nobody
saying anything negative about applying the patches and yet the patches
are not applied.  The random tree sounds like a sensible enough tree to
take this so if Ted picks them up perhaps that's most sensible?
