Doesn't this approach lead to less eyes on the code? An open source 
trunk is usually a development line where early commits are encouraged 
to enable people to run new code easily as well as looking at the code. 
Having useful code only in patches puts up an additional barrier to 
people looking at them.

How does this scheme work when there are multiple outstanding features, 
seems very unlikely many folks will download all patches & try them
