One of the things that works well in Linux is the patch queues that
they have.  You submit a patch, people talk about it, and various tags
get added to it.  They break things down into a series of mostly
independent patches.

Maybe we should try to initiate something like this so that we can
comment on changes more easily, as well as track submitters and the
like as things pass through Hans.

Consider it an experiment to see if we can do things to help improve
our world?
