No, it doesn't. Requesting your code to be pulled is a serious matter,
and a major break of the trust that is necessary for us all to work
together. You can't do something like this and expect it not to have

It was already unlikely that you would get any of your patches in, based
on their technical merit, but now even if you managed to make your code
acceptable, I wouldn't put it in, because I can't trust you not to make
