RE: suggested pkglint change: error on missing comment for patch

Now THIS is a capital idea.  I'll admit to being one of the lazy suckers
that's filed a patch and not fed it upstream.  If pkgsrc did it
automatically, using UPSTREAM_MAINTAINER email or some such, it would
relieve lots of duplicate work.  If I were the upstream for some project,
I'd prefer patches to be submitted via channels I've established, but if a
well-known packaging system pinged me by email I'm sure that I'd at least
try to take a look.
