We do have differences in perspectives.  Sometimes the best way to work 
through this is to talk it out.

My development process is to start with a clean checkout, verify that it 
passes all tests.  Make whatever changes I feel are appropriate.  Verify 
that the result still passes all tests.  And then commit.

 From my perspective, keeping the functional tests running clean is a 
discipline that benefits us all.  Going off and making a bunch of 
experimental changes without respecting that immediately prior to a 
SOAPBuilder event is a bit... er, um, unwise.

My preference is that whavever changes are safe to merge back to HEAD 
should be done so ASAP.  Everything else doesn't make this round of
