No, I think it works the other way - my random patches are likely the
_least_ important ones, simply because I can carry them around in my
own tree anyway, and my workflows may be odd by most git standards.

If I'm the only user of the "human" date format, then Junio is
absolutely right to not move it to the main branch.

I have some other private patches in my tree that have been mentioned
on the list but that nobody else got excited about:

 - Add 'human' date mode

 - Make 'git gc --prune=now' mean 'prune after start of command'

 - ls-remote: add "--diff" option to show only refs that differ

none of which are in the least important, but that I find personally useful.
