I hate to say it, but as the nethack maintainer, I must admit that
upstream is just a bit unreceptive of patches. I know I've forwarded
several patches to them to no avail. New versions of nethack are very
sporadic (read: 5 years between releases) and I think at this point,
forking shouldn't be totally ruled out.
