	I think we agreed this one is going to operate through patches.

	I would prefer a mixed name or feature name rather than a company
name -- so perhaps trifork-corba or corba, and web-console or
ibm-web-console, or something like that.

	Well, I don't want to offend anyone, but I can envision a scenario
where we don't see eye to eye with a submitter on architecture or features
or whatever.  If the submitter charges ahead with their own changes in
their own style and that turns out to be unacceptable to us, then the
whole module is wasted.  If they submit patches instead, we are free to
accept them or hold off and massage the code into something more
appropriate to us.  I am not saying this is the expected case, which is
why I only have a minor preference for patches, but it would be nice to
account for.
