No - this is indeed my view on the issue. However, this is a technical 
view; the *process* is completely independent, and very straight
forward. Submit the patch to SF, and somebody (probably Marc-Andre
Lemburg) will review it. The reviewer might ask questions or request
further changes (such as adding documentation); then the patch gets
accepted or rejected.

I know that *I* would ask questions as to why the submitter thinks the
patch is correct, and I would request that the submitter commits to
maintaining the patch. If you are unwilling to make such a commitment,
I can understand that - it just means that Python 2.4 might not have
these codecs (and we haven't discussed the 8859-16 at all).
