You have no tests or documentation. Once you have tests, preferably tests you've ensured fail without your patch and pass with it, the tests must run the testing gauntlet. Then, when all tests pass on all available platforms, you can ask that your patches be incorporated.

To the foregoing procedural issues, there's also the concern that you got almost no response to your proposal. That suggests that there is little to no interest. If that's truly the case, then your idea may best be implemented locally.
