We try not to throw things into CVS just because someone thinks it would
be a good idea.  When lots of people tell us they are successfully using
a patch and would like it to be included in the standard distribution,
then we consider it.  (Of course, if some *developer* thinks it's a good
idea, the process does get considerably sortened.)  Now that we have an
"experimental" branch, there's a better chance of things getting
accepted there.
