As a general note, I'm willing to make the same deal.  Anyone who has a
patch they are championing, if you will review some other patches for
us, I'll see if I can get the patch you are interested in committed.
We have a lot of patches in the tracker that only the submitter has
looked at/tested, or which lack tests or doc updates, and so they just
sit there...

(By the way, Julian, if you had done a review of the patch in question
(tested it, etc, and reported your results) progress on the bug might
have just started happening.  This is how it often works; although
there's no guarantee of course.)

I'd also like to point out that IMO the idea behind the one-for-five offer
is to leverage the "I have an itch to scratch" energy to the benefit of
all and, just as important (and as Martin already pointed out), perhaps
set some new people on the path to becoming committers.
