You miss the point. An unstable tree doens't convince people to
write and commit patches but give developers the opportunity to improve
their patches alot faster because there can be more feedback from the community.
With the current system the community can't comment on any patch since
the lasted builds (the nighly builds) are build from the current unpatched tree.

Yes of course you can't include every single patch, only those which add a usefull feature or fix a bug.

This may work for large projects like the linux kernel with hundreds of coders and
testers involved, but it sure won't work for radiant with only a handfull of programmers and no testers.

The patches are on the mailinglist, still we don't have any testers
so I would say that having the patches "elsewhere" doesn't quite cut it.
