I personally have a viewpoint somewhere in between.  I think in terms of
code "ownership", and since I've been actively hacking on gnomevfssrc,
especially the iradio code path, I think it's reasonable for me to
commit to it.

On the other hand I would never think of touching say the scheduler
without asking several people first.

But if people want an "every single patch approved by release manager"
policy that's OK by me.
