Hmm, in my mind it works the other way round, you hack locally on a
project, try to get changes upstream, and only if there are big
differing point of views between you and upstream, a fork might be
considered as an option. But to my eyes, it's up to you to be the one
pushing the patches for integration, it's not up to upstream to handle

Even for things done via plugins, pushing so that they get integrated
upstream can be a good thing.

Hmm, this is too much of a generalization, I'm not interested in doing
that at all, the default toolbar works for me :) so you can't say that
every user will be happy ;)
