This is YOUR itch, so YOU get to scratch it.  Apparently, no one else is
interested in it enough to write the patches on your behalf, at least,
not unless you are willing to hire someone to do that.  But at the same
time, no one has vetoed the idea of incorporating well-written patches.
 Patches speak louder than words; right now, your insistence on reviving
dead threads and complaining that no one is writing the patches is
rather annoying.  Quit beating a dead horse; if you want action, start
proposing patches rather than rants.
