Many patches have been completed and updated. One of the things you need to know is that we have had 3 devices launch since June, all on different versions of webOS. Every device needs to be tested with the patches and every version of the OS needs to be tested with every patch before they are released. So every update is a new round of testing and releasing.

Add to that, some of our developers started back to school a month or 2 ago. The patching (and even app development) is for free in a lot of cases and not their main job in almost all cases (I can't think of any patch developer that is an app developer by trade).
Take all that into consideration, then add to the fact some of the things being asked for are high level development and coding. webOS 2.x and 3.x have brought some difficulty to some of the patching we have seen in the past (for example items coded in C). Jason of Canuck Coding just figured out how to get the LED as a flashlight on the Pre3 (something we have had for 2ish years on every other webOS phone that had an LED). Then add in that some requests are near impossible to lay on top of an OS.
Just saying it's not that people aren't working on things.... but before everyone was working on pretty much 1 device running 1 version of the OS. Technically there are now 6 devices running webOS (not counting + versions), internationally on all different software versions.
