This is much clearer than lumping incomplete patches in with
nonexistent ones. A process that goes "needs patch->patch
review->(patch incomplete)->commit review->committed/rejected" (with
the possibility of multiple iterations between patch review and patch
incomplete) would give a pretty clear idea of where any given issue

The "unit test needed" stage is actually more a "confirmation needed"
stage - i.e. can the reported bug actually be reproduced by anyone
other than the original reporter.
