Maybe my initial wording was confusing but it certainly is not  
politics.  It is quality assurance.  If you submit a patch, the patch  
needs to be reviewed and tested before it can get committed.  The  
process of reviewing and testing patches is distributed amongst  
(mostly) volunteer contributors.  By uploading your patch to the  
patch queue (or the issue tracker), reviewers will be able to find  
your patch.  It's just the process we put in place to get bugs  
fixed.  I was inviting you to use this process.
