just check the list of contributors, and the maintainer hard fights against it now. The reason for the big patch has always been that the code had to be rebased because the maintainer basically didn't care about anything there.
I don't see any pull request on the mailinglist, Mauro does it offlist excluding everyone else from it. Ok I acknowledge that is what's wanted and how it should be done.
