We do. 

The vast majority of the patches people send in are a) of poor quality, b) 
introduce new bugs, c) are undocumented.

I don't recall any usable patch from Ricardo Galli being sent in. If he wants 
to send such a patch, we're happy to integrate them. I don't remember the DoS 
bug - that might be a real problem. It could be that a patch got lost 
somewhere. The "fast start" stuff is under development - we're taking a 
different approach that works better and is more reliable that the proposed 
patches previously submitted.
