This has been a fundamental disagreement in the development model for
a long time.  Some people think this is a great idea, others hate it.

The pros are that open source tends to be written best when there's
pain and suffering to overcome.  The cons are that sometimes things
that are shot in the head never come back to life, leaving our users
in the lurch.

Maybe this would be a good test-case for seeing how well it works?
Maybe not.  We do need to run a few more test-cases for things through
this scenario...  I'm not sure this one is well suited to it.
