Persist and prevail. My first big contribution was the hook_db_rewrite_sql  
patch. On Dec 23, 2004 I contributed the first patch, and Dries' first  
comment began with "I'm not likely to commit this".

A mere 21 versions later (real revisions, not the  
doh-i-attached-the-wrong- file variety), on January 16, 2005 it was  

The issue http://drupal.org/node/18260 is open since last March, true, but  
the first patch happened in October only and saw only 10 patches (I saved  
the issue HTML and grep'd for Attachment:). I used db_rewrite_sql as an  
example because a) you can't say I had the advantage as a "household name"  
-- back then I was a rookie but you *are* a household name, longer than I  
am b) in the end, rewrite sql was three times the size of this patch. I  
could continue long analysing the similarities between the db_rewrite  
patch and this one but I won't.



Ps. As you all know, I am for the structured links patch. I even rerolled  
it once or twice.
