Ah, I think that it is even more important to merge something that
doesn't quite work yet, than it is to merge something that works.  You
see, it is possible that others will offer additional help to make it
work.  The contraint on this, would that it should be `better' at each

I understand it would be nice to have it work perfectly, but since it
doesn't already, that isn't a possibility.  The best you can do is
just to make it `better', even if this isn't were you would like to be
at the end of the day.

Now, if what you would want to merge, isn't `better' than what it
replaces, then certainly I would agree to hold off merging.  I cannot
tell from your message which is the case.
