So just to clarify here: the idea behind my proposal is not necessarily 
to aid people who often fix large number of small bugs across packages, 
for such people it is best if they applied for proven packager status. 
What I'm more interested in is improving the situation where a "common" 
user comes across this one very annoying bug, decides he wants to help 
out and fix it, and then ends up seeing his patch rotting away because 
no-one seems to care. Such situations can be frustrating and also 
discourage from submitting fixes in the future.
