Obviously, once somebody submits a patch it's there for anybody to 
consult and use. So people who are into vanity publication shouldn't 
feel left out: if it's good, the community will read it :-)

I think it's a pity though that, particularly once an issue is closed, 
it can be difficult to find the attached discussion etc. Some way of 
finding all patches which have been submitted against a particular unit 
could be useful, since whether accepted or not the discussion could be 
enlightening and in some cases rejected code could be a useful starting 
point if somebody later has a related problem.
