	I don't think anyone "rejected" your patch or contribution.
My comments were simply statements that, good or bad, happen to be
true -- as far as certain parts of imlib2 are concerned. I can say
them because I re-wrote most of that code at the time, and even knew
of most the bugs.. I just never had the chance to get around to imlib2
again and fix, or improve.. this or that.

	Hopefully, by pointing out that there was still a lot there
that could be worked on, people like you, and others, might feel
more inclined to actually try their hand at *actively* working on
these things.

	However you may feel about my personal comments, you are
quite free to continue working to fix and/or improve things.. as you
see fit with your time and such. I'm sure that it's highly appreciated
even if it may seem that your patch is not always jumped on right away
-- I myself have had to wait many times for quite a bit.  And, of
course, you are also quite free not to.
