Chomp chomp... yup, a fair question. (Although, comically, your reply to
Dean directly addresses the "why not" question. :-)

Not everyone would ask for this all the time since they'd probably only ask
when they expect to have a little extra time available for a while.  But
with that said, everyone with CVS commit privileges would be the pool of
people able to ask their peers for this privilege.  When asking, they'd have
to set a time limit on the request (probably coinciding with their expected
surplus of spare time or a lull between releases.)  This privilege should
probably be withheld during periods prior to releases.

Who then would actually get it?  Beats me...  Not my decision.  Ask the
people who can vote.  Although it may be obvious I brought up the idea as a
possible compromise between Dean's gripes about the current process and
your concerns about taking it to the other extreme.
