Remember when I started the STATUS file for 1.2bINF?  I would start a
countdown on the mailing list and then just barrel my way through all
of the status items and either apply the patches or move them to a
"cannot be applied until..." category.  The RM job was more about
cleaning house in preparation for a release than anything else.  People
weren't prevented from fixing problems -- they just had to put them
in STATUS first and listen if someone else said the item should be
postponed until after some other item was done.
