Yes, if I didn't like the patch, or how it was done, I didn't accept it.
Just like any other upstream.  Did I use your exact code when I did it

And they're well within their right, as an upstream project, to reject
such things.  Just because the patch works great on one branch doesn't
mean it'll work the same on another.  They are the ones to decide that.
