As a developer at PLD-Linux I long ago applied to patch in our package
repository: http://cvs.pld-linux.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/packages/sword/sword.spec?rev=HEAD

However I would like to weigh in to this discussion to say that any
known bug that has to be patched in every major distribution before
release ought to be enough to warrant a point release in the upstream
project. There is no excuse for making every individual maintainer go
to the trouble of figuring out what is wrong with a broken package and
patching it.
