Ah, that's very different. So essentially people that now have
immediate gratification^W commit rights would "go back" to "one day

I'm not a very auditory-oriented person (and I came late to the
party), so I might have misunderstood, but when I said "one day is
short to review a patch", I specifically remember MMeeks saying
something to the effect: "one day waiting period is a lot for eager
new contributors". I think I thought this was about requests to apply
a commit *already* in master to stable branch.
