So you would like to push an interim solution down into the throat of 
the community, so someone will eventually realize that the solution is 
not fine and will fix it. You think that pushing interim things into 
core will make refinements come faster?

I think if there is no interest in refining some patch, there will 
possibly be no interest in going into fixing that stuff later on.
