I also wrote a patch adding the ability to upgrade only packages that were x days old (the only sensible way to add some stability to a rolling release package system IMHO), and a bunch of buffer overflow fixes for Pacman, but they didn't make it in either as far as I know.
I know others that left the forum/Arch for similar reasons. All very disheartening. Sad that not much changed since I left.
