Yeah, that sort of experience with committing code that will affect the
whole project is the type of experience I think would be useful.  I
think Gavin (on code-awards@) is right though, that CLAs would be
required if their code were committed, and since regular contributors
start off by just supplying patches, I might just stick with that (at
least initially).
