There are two opposing goals here:

  1) The "publish early, publish often" idea that posting small things
  early helps get useful feedback.

  2) The idea of waiting until things can be published in logical
  units so readers can see context and how things fit together.

I think Andrew's point (which I agree with) is that an individual
trivial patch like this is not enough to give meaningful feedback.  I
think you'll get better feedback if you wait and collect things until
you can post a series that actually fixes a bug or adds a small
feature.  It also makes it easier for me to track patches if I can
deal with a whole series at once instead of trying to figure out which
individual patches are related.

So I'd encourage you to think in terms of a series of 3-10 patches
that are all related and together produce something useful.  That's
easier for readers to digest than the same patches posted
incrementally over several days or weeks.
