Yeah, that seems pretty nifty. One issue is that non-committers can't
nominate patches as easily. I don't have a good suggestion here other
than adding those to either the wiki or bugzilla. I found the wiki
easier to deal with than bugzilla, although I should have made a spot
to put comments about patches which were not included.
