As it says on the 'devel' page:

"If you submit a patch and do not receive a response, please try 
again. Mails can be missed, people can be busy. Ie it's best to 
consider email a lossy medium - implement your own delivery and flow 
control on top of it."

We do now have a "patchwork" to track patches on the list though. 
Also, a lack of commit messages adds "drag" to integrating patches.

Why make the if_get_* conditional?

If you resubmit with a commit message, I'll apply this one.
