Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. I believe we've made strong efforts to get the community more involved - I know we still can improve in this - but situations will always arise that just need to be fixed. It's not ideal but it happens.

The problem is that generic solutions are complex and big. And we all
know what happens with big patches :-P
