Then why don't you replace the "feature" with a better implementation
and add it to that patch of yours?

Note that Evolution only recently reopened it's HEAD branch. And that
very recently the role of maintainer has switched to Harish. Please give
him a chance. Perhaps he just forgot about the patch or overlooked it?

Perhaps are performance issues less the focus-of-development at this

I wouldn't say that a patch that didn't get approval is (always) because
of political reasoning.
