The problem with 'Patches' are that Andy wont support the version of services you are using (even if the bug being discussed is a services one, additional code makes GDB a pain in the ass), and (Depending on the size), it could cause problems with future official Patches.

I find modules much easier to maintain too.

The only downside may be the additional overhead (but from what i've seen and coded, this overhead is minimal).

But i agree, a patch would be best for this. Its hard to balance the advantages / disadvantages thou.
