I agree with you in every point (after having contributed a couple of 
patches to KMail)

I'm not on the kmail mailing list, so I can only talk about my own 
experience that it's true that patches have been ignored and contributors 
discouraged (at least me, and I sent a mail in that time to the kmail 
mailing list saying that, so I'm not talking "behind their backs").

I hope some consensus is reached where Michael and Don agree and no 
developer ever gets discouraged again to develop on kmail.
