That will send a fine message to those companies that have sponsored
development work - that we will arbitrarily reject large patches that
have been worked on following the procedures that we require.

We must at least have the solid belief (of a committer that that has
done a proper review) that a patch cannot be polished in an
appropriate timeframe, or another justifiable reason for rejecting
rather than vague handwaving, guesswork and estimates based on email

If we do not, we will rapidly find that no company wants to sponsor
features for PostgreSQL in the future for fear that their money will
be wasted even if they jump through all the right hoops.
