But turn it around as well.  Consider someone who was a
committer but went inactive before the package came to
Apache.  Now it's at the ASF, and he becomes active
again, but doing so in a problematic way -- say, ignoring
vetos or raising them excessively.  (Pathological case.)
Do you believe the project would be ready to revoke his
commit access until he learned to behave and work with
the community?

Cases in the past in which commit access was revoked have
turned out to be universally very, very unpleasant.  It's
like laying someone off.  And as a rule, people on both
sides hate a layoff, and will put up with enormous crap
to avoid it and the bad feeling it engenders all round.
