No offense to any of the maintainers, but the e-mail system is
optimized for a very large number of very, very small changes. It isn't
optimized for large changes. In a way it tends to discourage any kind
of big improvements.
The idea of checking in a very large number of small patches makes
sense for auditing. And yes having both isn't totally possible, so I
don't know really where the line should go between the two. But taking
things to one extreme or the other doesn't make sense either.
