I'll also like to add that committers should learn to not interfere with 
others' work unless it's *against* the good of Cocoon, and not only 
because it's not what he/she simply prefers.

A good positive example is how Stefano let Actions get into Cocoon even 
if he was not sure about them. They were of use and a better alternative 
came up anyway.

A good negative example is how how I blocked error handling features and 
site pass-through stuff. With time I needed them and also took part in 
putting them in.

If committers were more tolerant on non-critical changes that other do, 
then committers like you, Carsten, would not feel in danger of being 
blocked by "death by discussion".
