Perhaps we could steal^h^h^h^hadopt some procedure from twisted, that 
has a bunch of extra fields for patches such as 'has patch', 'patch 
needs improv', 'need test', 'need doc'. Etc.

Then ppl could triage better, and we could more easily see which patches 
are applicable or not.

Perhaps it's too much overhead, but something in that direction might help?
