I'm fine either way. If you want to ask infra@ that's OK too I was just saying that
it might take them too long in case you wanted to get going or this is holding us
up. In that case, a patch is fine IMO. We're not too too far off in revisions and 
even if it's a big patch, we still have the history, just not incrementally. 

+1 for patch, or whatever you (who is doing the work) decides :)
