I think it would be preferrable to have such a patch tracker (that
tracks every single patch) separate from the bug-tracking system.

Also, I'm afraid we'll change from one extreme (no patch tracking)
to the other (over-zealous patch tracking).

A middle-ground I'd prefer is having patches explicitly submitted
by contributors, perhaps after they haven't been reviewed upon first
submission to the list.  I think this will be much more manageable
for us in the long or even mid term.

Good luck! :-)
