You know, I'm doing this in my free time. The idea was to do this for fun.
I have tried a couple of ways to cleanup the branch without leaving noise
in the patches/logs (i.e. fix individual patches) but got hit by various
bugs in the tools. But if this gets translated into incompetence at each
opportunity then you can forget about me contributing to this project.

The only thing I'm willing to do now is apply some patches that reverse
earlier patches that bother you, then you can take it or leave it.
