You can see on this ticket that I have tried using this method:

However it got a little messy/confusing quite fast (unfortunately that
patch touch a lot of files). And it is already broken against the
current trunk. :-(
As it is important to me, I am more than willing to maintain the patch
against the current trunk, but I suppose that sending an updated patch
to the ticket each time there is a needed change is a bit noisy.

I am also willing to learn to use Github pull request if this is the
official recommended way to manage the proposed patches.

But if the official guidelines is to use Subversion and diff/patches,
then I'll go this way and maintain my own mercurial-mq patches on my
local repository.

Thanks !
