Patches languishing on Trac is a real problem. The issue here is not at all
about not wanting those patches, but just about the overhead of getting
them reviewed/fixed/committed. This problem has more or less disappeared
with Github; there are very few PRs that are just sitting there.

As for existing patches on Trac, if you or anyone else has an interest in
one of them, checking that patch for test coverage / documentation and
resubmitting it as a PR would be a massive help.
