( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A while back I implemented a set of patches that have (unfortunately) caused some friction with the gods.

I don't know what friction you are talking about, unless you are talking about your own feelings. I made some suggestions for a better (IMHO) design which several people agreed with...

appear to be following Fords motto: "you can have any colour you like so long as its the colour I like."

Several people didn't like your patch and so now it is a policy to only apply patches "we like", eh? I didn't apply the patches primarily because I haven't had the time for such things. I bet I've got more of my own code that I've written and haven't applied than you have your own unapplied code.

I've certainly applied patches that I didn't like much. I've also regretted not pushing back harder in one such case, because now I can't fix a second problem until I undo the previous patch and redo it in the way I tried to explain several times.

You got lucky and got a few patches applied. That doesn't happen much for a lot of reasons still.
