We are getting the changes presently anyway. They are just in the form
of changed module files that WE have to diff and patch. This has value
for simple edits like people who want to take the time to reformat code
or change strings, etc. While i agree that /I/ think it is valuable to
learn how to "patch dance" i don't want to impose it on contributors who
otherwise dont need to.
