The code is not very active right now and the features you describe
are super high priority. In fact I don't think they're even on the
TODO list to be honest.
The patches directory is not for patches that are to be merged. On the
contrary its for stuff that wasn't really interesting enough to be
incorporated. But if the patch is something that I thought someone
might be remotely interested in, I just drop it in the patches
