There is nothing stopping people doing this currently, I have tried
this a few times and get little extra attention. Also it will
encourage people to not both with the tracker, they might just post to
the ml. Or you start having the same discussions in 2 places.

Something we could try is if we can agree on a few patches which we
definatly want in, is link them prominently on the front page
somewhere? "The community is currently trying to get these patches
into svn. If you can help please do so!"...?
