It is unnecessary, as there is still the chance that I might not want it. What I want and what I don't want, and even more, when I want it, dear Sir, I would like to ask you to leave up to me. A patch per definition is software which corrects faulty behaviour of the original software. Therefore it is also called bugfix. That, in all honesty, is not the attitude of a free, responsible man who decides for himself. What one desires, should be left up to him, not to others. By the same token, you would agree to monthly fees for making use of Steam - "if the developers desire it to be so, the fees are desireable". Or would it suddenly make a significant difference that in the latter case you were concerned in a negative way?
