[development] patches that need reviews/work

Centralizing everything that needs to be done in the next month in one
thread is much better and focused than going through hundreds of previous
emails just to find that patch that you were interested in at one time or
the other. The emails on the list that talked about patch reviews are
currently scattered through hundreds of development emails, it's ridiculous
to have to go through all of that.

Sorry I forgot to include a description of my patch, it's mainly a patch
that wraps the administration content retrieval query in db_rewrite_sql to
allow external modules to alter it.
