I just added your patch to UNSTABLE,
diff patches are usually ok, I dont think there are set rules as to how 
you should
submit patches, the issue with not applying patches is more of not 
having time to test and make
sure the patch does what is supposed to do than how a patch should be 
submited, I think.
