My github-fu isn't good enough. How would I go about getting a patch
from the pull request so I can test it?

Add the pull-request-creator's repo as a remote, and fetch the changes

$ git remote add frederik
$ git fetch frederik

Then either check out the branch temporarily (in "detatched HEAD mode"):

$ git checkout frederik/visual-studio-2010-compile-fix

Or as a tracking branch, which makes a new local branch connected to the

$ git checkout -t frederik/visual-studio-2010-compile-fix

Or, if you want an actual ye ol' patch, you can append ".patch" to the
Github URL:
That's what I was looking for! I remembered you could do something
like that but I was trying .../pull/300/patch not .patch.
