The problem with that

1) if I put in ~7000 fake pull requests, then it is messy for me to find
the "real" pull requests, put in by other people, and
2) I am pretty sure that many people do not look at previous pull requests,
when they put in theirs.

But it is so far not such a big deal, I only got ~50 of them during ~12
months. And in many cases, they are useful, because they can be moved
upstream. I will write a short tutorial about that.
