I think the bug advantage of voting is that it basically forces
people to be aware what is going on. By forcing people to vote,
you are hopefully more assured of more eyes looking at the code.
It also helps that everyone is at the same level... Right now
stuff is being added that most people really aren't even aware of.
Minor typos don't require votes, but more substantial changes or
additions should, esp since we do not have one particular person
in the driver's seat. Right now, everyone with commit priv's
basically does what they want... after awhile, the code will be
a hodge-podge of code and styles that no-one will know in-depth
enough to do any good.
