The reason for the whole tangent was the observation that large number of
the pending PR's are likely to fail one or more *BASIC*  tests and setting
stuff up to run those tests is trivial (like I said I voluneteer to do
it)... the other main thread there was that some of the *IDEAS* of SCM can
borrowed and incorporated into manual procedures (such as requiring a
successful build before a human will look at it) the other one is a more
formalized workflow such as the one that aegis enforces.... if just the
first is done I think half the PR's can be cleared out immediately and if
both then 80% can be cleared out within a few weeks
