This is my thinking, too. I've already described some of my concerns with
the approach for the multiprotocol stuff. As long as the patches are in the
non-controversial area, and are reviewable, then no problem.

When the patch arrives to insert a state_rec, then we'll start to see a
longer discussion about whether to commit them :-)

Also, note that the big mother patch that was on klomp is really just a
couple simple things, changed everywhere, and only a little bit of
multi-protocol work. Those simple things can go in, then we'd have a smaller
blob for Ryan's/Harrie's (Covalent's? :-)) ideas for multi-protocol.
