yes, that looks like it'd be useful, as well.  i think the key thing is to
add some rigor to the process, and mostly to relieve the main developers
from having to deal with the task of vetting new proposals.  they would
still have the final word on what gets done and how it gets done, but 
could restrict their attention to those proposals that have made it 
through the peer review process.  proposals that came along with 
working code would be nice, too.
