Well, I've tried that multiple times and didn't get the results that I
was expecting each time, so doing it all over again felt pointless.
Even now, you just repeat what you've been saying and I'd have to
fight through each and every point. It just doesn't feel worth the
effort. It'd be far less effort to just slurp the patches and
regurgitate them myself. I don't care that much about the changes
right now, so I'm just waiting for either someone else picking it up
or my yield with you somehow magically improving and the next refresh
addressing most of the issues.

So, I suppose this is bye bye at least on this thread.
