This sounds like a great idea!  I am not sure how you would like to
slipstream the bugfixes into Trinity, as equivalent patches may have
already been applied.  Suggestions here are welcome.

The main criteria for including patches into the Trinity project is that
a.) No existing user-visible functionality is removed
b.) If new functionality is added or the user interface is altered that
said functionality or UI changes can be deactivated by the end user
through a GUI configuration option
c.) The patches must be maintainable; i.e. clearly understandable by a
third party and adhering to all rules of the programming language in use.
