As I just said to Anthony in my previous email, I'm not trying to be an
ass, but I am passionate about this topic.

I just don't see why this would be a double standard for
committers vs contributors. The code-base has a serious lack of tests in
it, and that makes it hard to have faith in any merge.  We need to start
improving that situation.

I'm also not sure that there is a rush to get this merged into master.
The next feature release (4.2.0?) won't hit feature freeze for another 3
1/2 months.

I'm also a little confused about why there is an issue with testing the
revert.  It seems to me that we should be able to revert commits when
there are concerns like this, and that we have to accept the cost of it.

Let's start improving the state if things *right now*, and not defer
tests as an after thought.
